Generally when I machine quilt any quilt I select thread colors that will blend the most with the quilt fabrics, usually my go-to thread is #402 So Fine! by Super Threads. It's a great color and blends with so many quilts.
However, when Jane sent me this beautiful quilt she asked me to machine quilt it with a contrasting teal thread.
I'm not going to lie and tell you that even though I've machine quilted thousands of quilts using a contrasting thread still scares me a little bit. It's so much easier to find any mistake with a contrasting thread color.
But, if that's what Jane wants, that's what I'll give her.
We decided on an all over swirly pattern, and after starting the quilting I really fell in love with the contrasting thread, I really love how it gives the quilt so much texture. Thanks for suggesting the teal thread Jane!
