I am hand stitching a college emblem on the back of my quilt, but I am only stitching it on the backing. The front of the quilt is red/black/wht and the backing is solid black. I want the front to be the "nice non college" quilt and I want the back to the the "college" quilt. So after I stitch the emblem on the backing and then put the layers together I will will stitch in the ditch with invisible quilting thread. But what I want to know is do I use quilt thread or can I use embroidery thread to stitch the emblem? I am going to double sew it so the emblem is in red and white thread side by side. In my head the embroidery thread will be brighter and stand out more.
What should I do?
