    Choosing a Thread Color for Quilting

    I am getting ready to send in an I Spy quilt top and back to be quilted. I can't decide on a thread color. I used the large jar pattern so there are white backgrounds in many of the jars. The sashing is a royal blue. Piano key border is a wide variety of color. The back of the quilt is an overall pattern on dark navy. Being new to quilting I don't know if there is a standard when deciding thread color? Any suggestions are appreciated!

    Many thanks!!!

    A light grey or a beige blends well with almost all colors . . .

        I'm surprised at you Sandy! You didn't tell her there is no 'standard in deciding thread color'. (haha.)

        Tia-Sue - what Sandy suggested sounds good to me! Or, you could choose a color you like - such as the royal blue on the sashing or even one of the colors in your border - I'm sure whatever you choose will look great!

          I love using variegated threads when there is lots of color going on.

            Hey Sandy, that's what I was going to say...lol.
            Truly, if you are not sure, write quilters choice. Just let us know to blend or pop. And send it in!
            Happy Quilting
