    What color thread?

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]139379[/ATTACH

    I finally "got brave" and made a quilt from my daughter's t-shirts. She wasn't a big t-shirt wearer so I had few to choose from. She was killed in a car accident in 2011 at 17 and I just now decided I could do this. Now I am stumped with what color thread to have it quilted with. Orange was her favorite color so I did a solid orange on the back. I was thinking of a simple meander for the quilting. Thanks for any and all help.

    I'm so sorry for your loss and hope this quilt helps you remember some happier times.

    For a simple meander stitch I would pick a blue that matches the background color of the Peace and Love shirt.

      KelNC, this touched my heart! IMO, if your daughter's favorite color is orange, that just might be what you should choose. It would mean so much to YOU. And the all over meander quilting: right on!!!

        I can't imagine how you got thru this project. My heart just reaches out to you for your loss. But I do think I would go with the orange. Perhaps a shade darker or lighter than the backing.
        Walk in peace with the Lord by your side.

            I too can't imagine even getting started. (((hugs))) My oldest daughter's fav color is orange too. I think that would be nice. Or a variegated thread that has orange in it.

              Thank you, ladies. I think I am going to go with an orange and a meander. I appreciate the input.
