    I am planing to outline quilt a scrap quilt http://www.quilterscache.com/P/Pinwheel8Block.html and I didn't sort or anything, it is a really big hogepodge of scraps. It is white border and back, what would be the best color thread for the top?
    Thanks

    My vote is varigated thread. Don't ask what brand cuz I only hand quilt, but I love varigated and it would decorate your white backing.

    Varigated thread is beautiful when used both for quilting and for machine applique.

    I love variegated thread. I used it on my bargello because I couldn't match just one color ( too many colors in the quilt ) it worked great and looked so pretty.
