    Thread color for Halloween quilt

    OK, any of you who have made a Halloween quilt, what color did you quilt with? It is a simple pattern really, 9 patch of mixed Halloween prints, and every other row has a solid square between 9 patch squares. The solids are orange, lime green, purple and black. This is only my second quilt and will be my first one I quilt myself. Appreciate your help!

    I'd probably go with black.

    I like making things reversible for the holidays. So for the fall (Halloween, Thanksgiving and the season) I made the other side Christmas and used a fall colored varigated on one side and a Christmas one on the other side. It turned out great.

    Thanks for the replies. I was thinking black too, or maybe a varigated - had forgot about those. I am a very new quilter I have to keep it simple. The idea of a reversible is a great idea though, I will have to remember that tip. I knew I would get good advice on here, this board rocks.
