    Mostly I use cream and use my colored thread for basting. I now only buy colored thread if needed for specific project since I don't use it that much and thread has gotten so expensive.

    I have lots of beautiful colors of Aurifil thread, and I use them. A few months ago I tried Polyester thread for piecing and bought neutral colors and that works just fine....there's just something happy about all those colors.

    I also do this. I hate to unwind good thread from bobbins. And a lot of the fabrics I use have a lot of color in them.

    I use Master Piece thread in cream or light gray. Sometimes I use black. If some stitching appears after pressing the blocks or if the seams get pulled on the longarm (I make the fabric very taut) I use Sharpies to color the thread so it matches the fabric.

    I use neutrals. I do a lot of raw edge applique and tack it down with the button hole stitch so I save my colors for that and quilting. In regular sewing I use colors for top stitching.

    A lot of time, I use a light gray. It goes with nearly everything. Unless it's white or black, then I use those colors.

    Mostly neutrals or black for dark fabrics, except when I have a matching color in my stash I am trying to use up.

    Yes, I do mostly use neutrals but will try to use matching colors if quilts are darker theme. Just depends.

    I use "eggshell" (cream) for light fabrics & a med. gray for darker fabrics for piecing.

    Just curious-how many of you use colored thread vs a cream or grey or netural color for piecing?
Working...
