Default Thread color choices for the Dream Big Poppy Panel

Hello,

I was hoping to get some suggestions for thread color choices for the Dream Big “Poppy” Panel. I am from a small town in Montana and have limited access to quilting supplies and was hoping maybe someone could help me with this decision so I can order online.

I also have the the “Royal” Panel and would love thread colors for that panel as well.

Thank You!
April

I like to match thread color to the fabric as much as possible when I'm planning on doing intense quilting like I'll do with my Dream Big panel. Also a fine thread--a #50 or higher weight--allows for lots of quilting and the thread to melt into the fabric so it's not a "scene stealer".

looked up the poppy https://myfavoritequiltstore.com/pro...YaAi3EEALw_wcB

I would use yellow in the center and red beyond that

Certainly not a poppy, but it is beautiful. I would contrasting quilting, using the colors in the flower...ie. red thread on the yellow and vice versa. please post when you are finished.

Donna Jordan of Jordan Fabrics has a tutorial on Youtube where she did a large panel like that. She shows at the end the color she chose for it for the quilting. I don't remember off hand. You might check that out.

If you click on the second thumbnail pic in QuiltnNan's link, it shows (suggested?) thread spool colors on the different color petals on the poppy.
