thread color question

Recommended Posts

If anyone has suggestions about thread color, please send a message. There's a lot of black on this and I'm quilting it with a "tannenbaum" (Christmas tree) pantograph. I'm leaning toward the thread on the right in the picture because it has less gold in it. My goal is to not use a dark color on Santa's face and beard (he's VERY large on the print), but I also don't want to clutter up all the black areas in the background and on the wide border with too light a thread color.

Thanks!

Tamara;

If you want our opinions, I suggest you pull off 3 to 5 feet of thread and swirl it around on the quilt top, with both options showing.  That way you can get some real comparison inputs.  That is how I try out threads for my quilts.  Looking at the two spools, and the quilt top, they are too close for me to say one way or the other.

May your threads be balanced, and your bobbin forever full….
