I just remembered something else from my class last night, the instructor said that she does not try to match her thread color to the fabric she is working with. She said she uses a white thread on the top stitch and a grey in the bobbin. I never thought of this before but I guess it makes sense. In the end, no one is really going to see the thread (assuming the quilt top gets finished into a completed quilt) and in quilts that have multiple colors how do you pick a color to use? It made me feel silly though, because for the last three years, whenever I buy fabric to make a project, I have purchased matching thread as well. She suggested just purchasing a larger spool of the grey, white or black and I think she even said cream is OK as well. This saves money which mean, MORE money for FABRIC! Plus, you don’t need seven hundred bobbins so that you can have one to match every thread. Wow, this is just brilliant! OK, so what do you think? Do you agree with this idea or do you think that thread should always match? Please reply.
