    Definitely would not use clear to quilt, my opinion. I love the variegated thread look, however when I feel uncertain and an not in love with my thread choices, the old stand by is a light grey, it blends in well with all the colors and won't make your quilting the focus. Good luck deciding.

    Good quilting. Suggest variegated or grey. Have fun, she'll love it.

    Whats daughters favorite color? and what are you binding in? I like the green or a gold to bring out the stars and do all same color will pop or blend when going over your three colors.I don't care for invisible thread either. It will be wonderful what ever YOU decide.

    I agree with the varigated thread. I was at my LQS on Monday and was looking at their varigated threads and they had one that was the purple & lime green. That would look awesome!

    I like to use variegated thread, but I also have lately started liking gray when the colors are widely different in a quilt. I took a quilt that had a variety of very different colors to a local longarmer and she suggested it. I was very happy with the results. If you don't want the quilting itself to be really noticeable, a gray might be the best choice. Do a couple of test sandwiches with different colors and see what you like.

    I like variegated thread when I have several colors. If I were going to use purple on your quilt, I would rather go with a lighter shade of purple.
