Black and White Sandwich

While my husband was busy jumping out of an airplane for a friend's bachelor party today, I chose to do less risky things-  like take some pictures and sandwich my black & white quilt.


Now that it is all sandwiched and ready to go, I can't decide what color thread to use for the quilting.  I originally thought I would use yellow.  However, now that it is all together, I'm leaning towards using white.  I think the white would tone down some of the busyness.  What do you think?

Hello...I'm a fairly new reader. Sorry I'm just now getting around to commenting. I LOVE this quilt. I would have never thought to use the color combo, but I think it's great. I tend to stick to white thread for quilting, but I think the yellow would look really cool on this quilt. Can't wait to see the final product, and hopefully your hubby stayed safe today!!

while i know next to nothing about quilting, i agree with you that the white might tone it down a bit. The yellow thread might take away from the interestingness of the yellow/black/white pattern.
