    What color quilting thread would you use on this quilt? I'm thinking brown but I'd rather use white or cream/off white on the white sections.

    I would go with the off-white, I am a traditionalist. I would think the dark thread would distract from the text blocks.

    or you could go with a pale pale gray thread that would blend in with everything
