It was a challenge to choose a thread color that didn't totally disappear into that vibrant green fabric. Green blended in too well and became invisible. I ended up with a medium turquoise blue.
This is Judy's quilt - it's a BIG one. You can see it hangs off my design wall in the photo.
Judy is a quilter after my own heart - she loves sparkly stuff! The snowflakes are all made from Fairy Frost fabric and the stripe has lots of gold metallic. I discouraged her from using gold metallic thread over the entire quilt because she does want to use this on her bed. I did use some but mostly used Glide thread in gold - it gives something like the same effect as real metallic thread.
I wish I had picked all the threads off this before I took the picture - they drive me crazy!
I carried the snowflake theme into the blocks as well.
I'm almost caught up on my quilting list!
