This is a ufo that I've had for years. I wasn't able to afford to get if quilted, so it sat in a bag for years. Anyways, could you all give me your opinions on how to get it quilted. It's probably gonna have to be a pantogragh, but what color should I do the thread? It just seems like the black really stand out to me. Maybe the green or orange, maybe the purple. What do you think? The back will be the tropical fabric too. Thanx for any suggestions.

maybe some neon/black light or glow in the dark thread would be really cool on it. I love the quilt top though.

I'd go with variegated thread that has the green and orange in it and do either vines or random flowers in an overall design. It's very bright. You did a good job on this tropical delight.

Variegated greens might be nice; a pattern that would give it a wavy motion would be great. The quilt is beautiful. You did a great job. Thank you for sharing.

I would love a purple variegated thread. Your quilt is beautiful and you did a great job matching the points and centers.
