    I hear that gray blends with almost everything, have I done it?, no. Love your quilt!

    I like the thread to show, so I think I'd use orange.

    I, too, would use orange or a variegated orange. This is a lovely and fun quilt.

    I have a few black/orange variegated threads from Valdani that I plan on using on a Halloween quilt.
    http://www.valdani.com/product_details/2
    Search for Color#'s M61 and M804

    Mind you, the quilt is not even made yet. But I have the thread. :roll:

    There are a ton of variegated orange only threads as well.
    (It's a wonky website.)


    Your quilt is great! Perfect for the season.
