    I am not the "maker of blankets" LOL...I tend to stick to the artsy stuff. But, a dear friend gave me this quilt kit featuring tonga batiks called "solar flare".... I just finished the piecing, now have to buy backing fabric and give this free motion quilting a go... haven't decided on a design yet...any suggestions..also I have no idea what color thread to quilt with?

    You are probably right! Each aplique piece is satin stitched with a coordinating thread and I probably don't want anything else competing with this...HMMMMM.....Thanks

    It sure is beautiful. I think I'd go light gray and hope it didn't distract from the gorgeousness of this quilt ~ Pat

    I would only stitch in the 4-patch parts; let the melons or petals float.

    WOW! That is a great quilt! I like variegated threads and would probably try to find one that blends well with the colors rather than sticking out. Take it with you and unroll several feet and try them out on the different colors.

    It's just beautiful!
