I am working on a quilt for a friend's soon-to-be-born baby girl. The nursery theme is *jungle*, and the colors are rose pink and raspberry. Yeah, I know. So I was planning to quilt my now-sandwiched quilt with an all-over picture from the back in a dark green thread, so that my pretty jungle picture will show up on the back as if it was a wholecloth quilt. However, I don't really want the pattern to show up on the front very strongly, as the front is already distressingly cluttered. My question: what color bobbin thread would you suggest? Pink? Green? Can you use clear (monofilament) as a bobbin thread? (I've never used monofilament for anything except fishing.)
Or should I just abandon my all-over-from-the-back idea, and quilt the front with treefrogs in the jungle squares, and SID the little squares. Sigh.
Thanks in advance.
