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.
    Well I think I am going to machine quilt it but I have only done that once before. I am pretty much an inexperienced newbie lol. But I think I will have fun playin around. It might be twin sized but I think it is even a bit small for that. So its a pretty good size to start with and nothing too big and too hard to handle. I have been trying to get my grandma to teach me how to quilt every time I go back home to visit but she is pretty tight lipped on how she does things. She likes to just tell me oh hunny just keep trying things out and you'll get it... You all seem very helpful. I really appreciate the tips and advice.

    Brown seems to me the best choice... maybe a warm brown rather than a really dark brown. I am sure that what ever color you finally decide on will look great. Just don't take too long to pick a color.

    Varigated thread I think would be cool!

    I did a quilt similar to that and I used variegated thread and loved the effect. Give it a try.
