    Default What color thread of quilting this??

    I made this wall hanging for a friend who did family portraits for us, I don't love it, but I want to finish it and move on. I want to quilt it on my sister's domestic machine this weekend. What color thread should I use??

    **** for quilting....

    Also, it is 2 inch squares on a fuse able grid foundation... How densely should I even quilt it??

    The total size is about 22 in X 36 in

    I think I would do some color changes to accent the mountains.

    I was thinking switch colors too, but I think a light olive green would look good overall.

    If you are just using one color.......what about a gray to match the thin border you used. Or if you are using more than one color I like "quiltaways" idea.

    I think a grey would look good on all of it.

    grey would work beautifully. as for the quilting, you don't need much at all, especially since it's a wall hanging(won't be washed or 'over-loved' like quilts tend to be).

    First of all- I really, really like this wall hanging you did- colors are great & a nice design! I agree with the majority- gray will show up nicely!
