It's A Match!

Once again my local quilt shop has saved the day! They had a bright pink thread that was a very close match to what I needed to finish the quilting on my Quick Strippie. The new thread is a bit darker, but now that the quilting is finished it's very hard to tell the difference between the two threads. I don't think anyone will notice the difference. Now to get the binding done, so I can move on to the next project!

Oh that is such a pretty quilt, and looking at it on the screen I would agree the quilting thread looks just fine! Also when the quilt has the *quilted look* after moving it around a few times...it will be perfect! Have a great day!

Such a cheerful quilt. Glad that you could find thread to match.

Even if there is a slight difference no one will notice. That is one of the things only the quilter knows. Your quilt is so bright and happy looking.

I love the fabrics you have chosen for this quilt. I actually made dresses for my grand daughters out of these florals a year or so ago. They loved them.

Bright and bold and beautiful -- brought to you today by the letter "B." Love the quilt! Glad your quilt shop had a thread color close enough.

The quilt looks wonderful and I'm sure nobody will notice the difference in thread color. One time I think I usd 5 different ecrus/off whites to get through some machine quilting. Of course, now, I wouldn't have any idea which quilt it was:)
