    I would go with brown. It will stand out quite a bit on the lighter parts, but I think it would tie it all together the best.

    wow, sounds like you have a variation of answers, so now you're probably just as confused as when you posted. tee hee My 2 cents, I'd put a border on it. Maybe a small one (an inch) and then a 3 - 4 inch border. I'd probably use the teal/blue colors for these... then I'd quilt in brown. Can't wait to see it finished!

    How do you plan to quilt it? The quilting design always helps me decide on the thread color. I would put a brown border on it and use one of the pinks for the binding!!JMO I love the quilt!!

    I have those fabrics! I'm thinking the brown would look really nice.

    What a beautiful quilt and the pink's are perfect. I think a brown thread will work great!

    I think it is going to be a gorgeous quilt! As for the color of thread, I think either a Natural or a Brown. Just my 1/2 a cent. Are you going to handquilt or machine quilt it? You might want to stretch out a nice long pc of whatever colors of thread across the quilt top and audition them to see which you prefer. That is how I make my decision most of the time. :wink: Sometimes the most unexpected thread wins. Anxious to see it completed. It'll be a beauty.
