Carole -

The 90/14 needle will work great if you are quilting thru 2 layers of fabric and batting.  No worries about the quilt itself.  If the needle will slide back and forth on the thread- the thread is not to thick for the needle you have.  If it doesn't slide easily without getting stuck when you run the thread thru the eye and then hold one hand higher than the other and then the other hand higher (back and forth) then you need a larger eye on your needle.  Try a top-stitching 90/14 needle.  

I am not sure about the acufil question you ask - but if the thread is the right color and the needle isn't an issue- then go for it.
