Twisted Stitcher mentioned that her Capuccino (sp) was done with varigated thread, but I think it was machine quilted. I plan to hand quilt mine. I am wondering if it will look okay, as it will not be one long continuous line.

I used variegated thread on my first hand quilted quilt and it looks great.

Why not? I think it would add even more interest.

I love the look of verigated thread. The colors really add to the over all look.
