My quilt is sandwiched and ready for quilting.
Black scottie dogs on beige with red scotch plaid panelling.
I intended to machine quilt with beige thread in my needle and red thread in my shuttle to blend with the red backing.
I'm finding it so awkward to get my work in the sewing machine ( Yes, I know I can roll it up, I have cycle clips for the job) but the stitches aren't even so have decided to hand quilt.
My query is, do I hand quilt with beige thread which will show up on the plain red back or stitch-in-the-ditch with red thread on the top.?
Which thread is best for hand quilting?
I bought some Q/thread some time ago and noticed it is a little thicker than the Guttermans and yet size twelve q/needles are so fine.
I DO need advice as quick as poss please.
The quilt is intended for a Christmas gift.
My very best to all you quilters.
