    I am getting ready to quilt this Lucky Stars. It will be my second on my LA. I just can't decide if I want to use my light tan or light blue thread on top.

    Both are Signature thread. The tan is called Antique Satin and the pale blue is called Ocean Mist.

    Both look great with it, but obviously I can only choose one.

    PLEASE help! :) I am loading it on the frame this morning.

    I don't think it'll matter - will look good with either

    my hubby said blue, too. I was leaning that way because it will also blend in with the greens. My bottom thread is the tan because the back is a tan print.

    still not decided 100%.... keep em coming

    ONE MORE QUESTION:

    I want to echo the stars, and thinking about doing a loopy meander around the block borders?

    I did feathers on the last one, and it came out really good, but i want this one to be softer.

    It depends how much you want the quilting to stand out. The blue will stand out more and the tan will blend in more.
    I think your quilting ideas sound beautiful!
