    Hi All,

    I have just finished piecing a nursery quilt which uses a large panel (jungle) and primary 9 patch with a couple of windmill? blocks with zebra stripe and primary colours thrown in for good measure.

    The back is made up of primary strips!!!

    My problem is that I have it all on my gracie II ready to quilt... I was going to use a neutral thread.... but it shows up so much on the primary colours!!!! I am only going to do a meander so the quilting is not the star of the show. What should I do?

    Hugs

    Maybe gray or a multi-colored thread.

    I would use variegated thread that had most of the colors in the quilt. It would add some fun to the meander pattern.

    Valdani makes lovely variegated thread and they seem to have a lot of retailers in the UK. They do have one that is all primary colors. Here is a link to their UK retailers.
