3 Rules of Thumb Make the Choice a Lot Easier!

Do you tend to get stuck when it’s time to choose the color of the thread you’ll use for quilting your quilt? Or, have you ever been unhappy with the color once the quilting is done?





If you’re like many quilters, you may even use the same safe color for every quilt and would appreciate some help with branching out. After all, there are so many beautiful thread colors out there that it’s a shame not to use them!

Tips for Choosing Thread Colors for Quilting

Fortunately, three guidelines make thread selection a lot easier. Angela Walters does a great job of demonstrating them in the following video.

She covers the process of selecting thread for quilting dark fabrics vs light, choosing one overall thread vs different threads for each area of a quilt, and more. Even experienced quilters are likely to find her insights helpful.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!




PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
