Baby Quilt

My clients make the cutest quilts!
Don't you just love that one little brown block . . .

Most of my quilting is done with 'So Fine' thread from Superior Threads. They ship it out the same day and usually it's only 2-3 days to get an order. I appreciate that. For my basics and neutrals, I always order 2 cones of each color, that way, I can fill my bobbins with one cone and keep the other cone threaded through the needle.

This was quilted with #403-Putty.  I rarely use white thread unless the fabric is bright pure white . . . and then I have 4 colors of white!  When you audition thread color for a quilt, if you pull out about 3 feet of thread from your cone/spool and lay it on the fabrics, you will get a better feel for what you want for your color selection. Usually, I choose 3-4 cones from my thread rack, then narrow it down to the one that is just right.
Here the thread looks light blue . . .

 . . . now it looks green . . .

. . . now it's beige . . .
