    What thread do most of you use when quilting. Do you match the thread to the pieced top or bottom. Or just go with a neutral like cream, grey...

    I use neutral also. I always go with looks best on top.

    My thread is 100% cotton. Most of it is from Connecting Threads and Threadart. When piecing I use a neutral thread that blends with most of the fabrics in the quilt. Cream, white, gray, blue-gray. It just depends on the fabric. When quilting I match to the fabric on top.

    I match the bobbin to the backing and the thread to the top.. :D but I'm crazy like that. Usually the two are similar so any pull thru isn't obvious.

    This is also what I do. I also use threads from Connecting Threads and ThreadArts. BUT, I'm searching to try something new. Any suggestions ladies?
