What is the usual thinking on using colored thread for hand quilting a project. I have started a quilt that was pieced in the 40's-50's...traditionally, I always use an antique white or white thread. Do any of you use colored? How do they judge using different colors at shows or is that a no-no? None of mine are show quilts, I just try to keep with the time the quilt was pieced. Just wondering! Have a great day!
