    I use grey or blue grey or beige. A lot of times I just use what's in my bobbins also. Sometimes I just use any threads because I have quite a few of them and don't want to spend the money on more thread when I have so many laying around.

    For scrappy piecing - when I have dark fabrics - I try to use up all the small amounts of thread that are on the bobbins and spools. Have to change the bobbin fairly often, but then I get empty bobbins for my 'real' projects.

    My 'go-to' color is that smokey grayish green - when I can find it - or a medium sagey green. It is amazing how that color just sort of disappears on most fabrics.

    If its a scrap quilt .. its odds and ends of what ever bobbin I have. For top thread its light gray or ecru.
