    Default Under the Stars - What Color Thread?

    My Under the Stars quilt top is almost finished, and will have a plain black border to match the stars. The 880 snowballs didn't take as long as I thought they would

    My question is: What color thread should I quilt it with?

    No idea what colour of thread you should use. I just wanted to tell you how beautiful I thought the top is.

    What about one of the multi-colored threads. Since you have so many - it may blend in nicely -- Beautiful quilt

    Lovely Lovely quilt. It is quite a stunner. Perhaps someone who does LAQ'ing could give you some advice. What does the backing fabric look like?

    Wow, that is gorgeous! I think I would also consider a variegated thread for that one.

    I got a variegated thread with these colors at Joann's. Check them out. Your quilt top is beautiful.

    What a stunning quilt! I would definitely use a rainbow variegated thread for this. Maybe something like this

    I love your quilt, it is beautiful. My thought on thread would be one of the multicolor threads. What color is the backing fabric? Thank you for sharing!
