    I took the advise of quilters on this board (of course!) and made a Rail Fence quilt for my dauhgter's birthday. Now I don't know how to quilt it because the front has 3 colors. Is an all-over meander oh with purple thread or should I skip the grren and white blocks and meander only the pirple or maybe just SID?? Please help...thank you!

    I did not adjust tension, just whipped this up real quick so I could get it posted!

    Maybe I should use invisible thread?

    well you have to do more than just the purple..... maybe use white thread or beige or even gray. not sure. It will be loved no matter what color you choose.

    Someone on here suggested gray and I like to use that now when there are many colors.

    Maybe a variegated thread, or possibly a compatible shade of grey.

    I don't like the clear thread. It sometimes is stiffer after a while. I like the purple.

    Maybe a green thread. OR a Gold thread to match the stars in the purple.

    I agree, a variegated thread would look pretty.

    I really like the purple I think it adds to the quilting.
