    Can you give me some ideas on what color to use to quilt this top. The hot pink with black dots is the backing
    I'm lost. Its the quilt I made to donate to the hospital to raffle off. I have to get it quilted.

    I think I would go with a pink unless you want the quilting to really stand out then possibly purple or black - nice quilt by the way - love the brightness of it all :D

    Have to agree with the pink, maybe a shade lighter if you want it to stand out more against the pink. Any pink will look great on the back and will be pretty against the black on the front. It's delightful!! Know they'll do well with it.

    Hi Debbie,

    I think using pink would look really nice. However, if you can find a variegated pink, (different shades of pink, etc) that might give it an interesting finish. It will be a great quilt for a raffle.

    My quilting isn't the best so think I'll be going with the pink LOL!!! I am so nervous to start wish there was someone here to push me to do it. They need the quilt as soon as possible so they can start selling tickets. REALLY thought I would have started it today but been here reading all the posts. Maybe I can blme it on the board. :roll: Guess I need to visit the wizard of Oz for courage
