  • Please help me decide thread color for quilting...help

    Could someone please suggest what color(s) thread to use in quilting this? I plan to use a walking foot to make vertical lines that follow the shape of each color and have absolutely no idea how to begin selecting the correct color. There's always the option of using a different thread for each color on the wheel, but that wouldn't be my first choice. Thank you in advance for helping me.

    That's very cool. I would use dark purple or black. White would show up on all the colors you have but wouldn't be as dramatic.

      My first instinct is to go with a golden shade of yellow. If you really want to pop the quilting use a golden shade of yellow on your warm colors (yellow through red) and a blue thread on your cool colors (green through purple)

        Now if it were Angela Walters, she'd use a matching color of thread on each section. It definitely would be more work to do it that way.

          How about battleship gray. This is my multicoloured quilt. LAQ suggested gray. I love it as it blends with all colours .
          Preview threads on your quilt. It will reveal itself.

            I would say it depends if you want your thread to 'pop'. If you want to see the thread color, my initial thought was yellow. If you don't really want it to pop, then perhaps a light grey.
