    Oh wow. What a beautiful quilt. I love the fabrics. I think my choice would be red, but I also think that if you used invisible or white and did a really nice quilt motif in the large white squares so the quilting itself was featured that that would be pretty too. Very nice...I'm sure it will be lovely no matter what you choose.

    I love your quilt, it is very pretty. I would find a varigated black/white thread to use. It would blend with your prints and reds while also working with the black and whites. Again, love your quilt. thanks for sharing.

    Either would look great, but I'm liking red the best. Thanks a bunch for sharing what the pattern is and where you found it.

    That is a beautiful quilt. I would use white or invisible thread especially if you are planning on a motif in the light blocks.

    I think I would use invisable thread. You could see the quilting but not the thread color where not wanted.

    Make a sample piece of all the fabrics and sandwich it. Then practice with all the colors you are considering. Pick the one that works the best from there. So many times I have thought I knew what color I was going to use, but after making the practice sandwich, have changed my mind.
