Hey Everyone :)

I still need to add borders to this quilt (shown here before stitching the blocks together) and will be quilting it on Saturday... Was wondering what ideas you have for thread choice? quilting designs?

Thanks in advance for your help xxx

Def SID the stars!

Dont know if feather's would show up or not with that busy print combination going on.

But...then again, if you used a DARKER thread, i'll bet they'd show up!!

How about a varigated thread with that orangish yellow and pink combo?

With stitching "baptist fans, but when you get to the starz..you stop stitching?!

Sometimes I lay out several threads next to eachother on the quilt to audition thread colorss. Don't be shy to try a completely "odd" color sometimes that is the best choice! :)

And I see a feather background fill around all of the stars.

i'd consider some Magna Glide threads for this sparkly top. They have some beautiful-to-die-for colors!

yep thats the one :) I had it on the frame, and have done a swirl with feather for the top and bottom borders, SID to outline stars and define the light/dark crosses, and added some "petals" inside the stars, then I took it off the frame to turn it to do the other two borders and will feather inside the crosses ... will post some in progress pics and then some completed ones when its done but it won't be on the frame again just yet as I have a quilt for my daughters 7th birthday to finish before Sunday as well as 7 doll quilts that will be party favors for the party :) it's all go here :)
