    Love your colors. I too would use a pale gray. It will blend in good. Your daughter will love it whatever color you use to quilt.

    Hmm, if you are going to meander I might be tempted to do the purple and green.

    I did a split rail last year and did a decorative stitch around each block. It turned out wonderful!

    I like the purple thread on the white and green, maybe use a gold thread in the purple.

    Verigated thread really adds to it I think, but doing an all over stipple is probably the best, or you can stipple in sections like all the white done in a varigated, and the blue done in another var, thread(say blues from light to dark), and purple strips done in a var, purple. that would be really cute, or you could do a wondering vine. There are a million ways to do it. Just remember to breath and relax and enjoy. Best of luck, have fun.

    I did not adjust tension, just whipped this up real quick so I could get it posted!
    Maybe a variegated thread, or possibly a compatible shade of grey.
    I'd go with variegated too

    OK...I made enough sample sandwiches for another quilt. I tried several of the suggestions on here and could not decide wich one my DD would like.Soooooo....I asked her to choose. She already knew I was working on a quilt, I just did not tell her the pattern or colors. She immediately chose the first sample I posted! Go figger!!! She loves the purple because..and I am quoating her: "It calms down the white!" Well ok then..problem solved..thank you all so much! Today it gets quilted since we are snowed in just like the rest of the country!!

    Agree. The purple makes it stand out very nicely. You did a great job!!

    I think it looks good as is. I like the meandering all over with that color of thread.

    The neat thing about color is it makes the person happy who is receiving it. If your dughter likes purple then for sure she is going to like it the way you hav sewed already. If you were making it for someone you were unsure about them maybe, verigated or gray so it would not show as much... lol This is a call for the you :) No matter what you do your daughter will always love it because Mom made it in love. ((hugs)) :)

    I used variegated thread and quilted in the ditch. Let the colors do their work. Maybe one line of decorative, viney thing down the middle. I'm a fan of stitch in the ditch on any kind of pattern like this. The colors are so gorgeous I want to show them off. If necessary, I'll machine tie along the center of a color.

    I think the thread stands out too much. How about white or clear.
