The color of thread that you quilt your quilt with can make or break the quilt design, and that color choice can be tough if the fabrics you’re quilting with have multiple colors. In this video, Heather Thomas shows you how easy it can really be to choose the right thread. Remember: when in doubt on a color choice, choose a tone!

    When you see a spool of thread how do you know its a tone or a hue of a color. They don't put that info on the spool do they?

    What if you have different color solid blocks, Would you use beige and wouldn't it show on the bright or dark colors
