    He's a BQ2 again. I was going to use black thread on top but decided that black thread would overwhelm the white and yellow flowers so I used white. What do you think? Your input is always helpful to me.

    Well, I'm no expert, but I like the white thread. It shows up nicely on the solid black and compliments (but doesn't overpower) the florals. Nicely done, as always! :D

    That looks good, I think either would have been good. I also read to use gray when there is more than one color...what do you do in that situation?

    I agree, that much black thread would give a dirty appearance from a distance. It looks great!

    I try to get the customer to choose the color threads. Safer for me, lol. I believe you are correct! Gray would be a good choice. Thanks for the reminder.

    Another great job Jacque! I like the white - I think the black would not have been good over the polka dots...unless you were going to play dot-to-dot :wink:
