Good Evening All,
To all hand quilters, may I ask you a question? I have attempted hand quilting using white thread for hand quilting. I have been watching tutorials and a Sarah F. who uses pearle cotton thread to quilt. In her tutorial she used blue and was quilting on white fabric. I first thought this might be for demonstration purposes only. I guess this thread gives a homey look. I wish to hand quilt a quilt for my daughter and future son in law. I have 2 years to achieve this or otherwise it will be first anniversary LOL My second question if using light and dark fabrics do you want the quilting stitches to show like white on blue or is the quilting to be seen by its pattern only like blue thread on blue fabric?????
I hope I am making my questions clear.
Thanks for your time and help.

Audition the thread color by pulling out severals lengths and lay them on the top and see what looks the best.
Don't be afraid of using colors that show, you hand quilting deserves it
