    Default Aurifil Thread Color

    A question for those with a large collection of Aurifil threads. Which of the orange colors goes best?

    I'm sewing a t-shirt quilt with various colored blocks. I can't decide what to quilt it with. If I use black the quilting will disappear on the black blocks but really stand out on the light ones and the same if I use a white/light thread. I was thinking I might go with an orange to match my orange setting blocks. I hope you can tell the color from the photo...it is a bright "hunter's blaze" orange. But which orange? Here is an easy list link of the colors:

    I'd get a variegated one. I love quilting done with that.

    I agree I would use a verigated thread in shades of orange.

    Variegated would be my choice as well.
