I am glad that I followed my first choice of thread color for quilting.
When I look at fabrics I instinctually feel what is right. I see the colors and usually don't think about choices, I just work with what feels good and right for me.
I think because I was creating this piece for a tutorial I over thought the color scheme. I spent a morning making a smaller quilt so that I would have a sample to work on with a grey thread when instinctively I had liked and chosen the teal.
The grey is a perfect neutral and it is always good but in this case didn't add that extra touch that I wanted.
I am very happy with the way it turned out with the teal quilting
