Faster Posies at 15 inches

This is Carolyn's quilt for her aunt. There was quite a debate about which thread to use. Carolyn had no clue what color thread, "Red, Maybe?" The pattern from Tammy Finkler Designs is called Faster Posies.

Brenda, a friend of the owner suggested white thread.

Two ladies at the LQS said I should use gold thread.

In the end I used Superior's King Tut Pumice which I though looked great against all that red.

So, what color thread would you have chosen.

No comments:

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
