    I'm getting ready to do the quilting on a quilt for me. The fabric colors are burgundy, deep teal blue, med blue, white, pink. I'm not sure what color thread to use to do the quilting. The thread colors I have to choose from are white, med gray, med pink, dark red (merlot -- which is what I'm kinda leaning toward), light blue, dark blue. Any opinions?

    An easy way to help you decide which looks best on your quilt is to pull off 3 feet or so and lay it across several of the fabrics in your quilt.

    I think the dark red(merlot) would be pretty. For me it depends on whether I want the quilting to stand out or blend in.

    Without seeing the colors I would say the gray cause I think it would blend better with the pink and white. Course it all depends on how much you want your quilting to make a statement. Let's see what others weigh in at!!!

    Merry Christmas.:):)

    my first thought was also the gray. But, the sure way to figure it out would be to lay the various colors across the different colors & see what works.

    What pattern is it? That makes a difference. I have used variegated threads and love how they look.
