Hexagons and hand quilting

It's been a changeable day today weatherwise.  Ideal opportunity to get my quilting hoop out and make some headway on my hexagon cushion


Because there are so many colours in this pillow I was unsure what colour thread to use but it suddenly hit me, the grey would be ideal.  It is not overbearing, but at the same time when the whole cushion is quilted it will be noticeable albeit subty.  Would you agree?

  1. You're right. I forget about grey in embroidery or as a background color, but then when I see it it always looks great! Wise choice, my friend.

  6. I love the grey it really makes the colours pop and looks fantastic. Isn't it funny how we sometimes forget these colours when making quilts. Must remember to use these more often in my sewing.
