Decided -

To play with my Antique Squirrel next -
A friend (Gene) suggested that I could get it quilted - 
Before my new frame is delivered in two weeks - 
So I pulled out some cones of thread to audition - 
That weren't BROWN or too LIGHT -
I don't want to have to change colors - 
And I don't have a cone of TURQUOISE thread - 
So I got it down to these two - 
The BLUE is called CHICORY - 
And the WINE is called RED CURRAN - 
I "puddled" both colors on the TURQUOISE - 
And the BLUE disappears -  
There's a big blob of it in the top corner that you can hardly see - 
So the BLUE wins! - LOL - 

My stitching isn't that great yet - 

So I will feel more comfortable with a thread color that "blends" - 

And that will let the quilting be more "texture" than design - 

It should also hide my boo-boos - 
Tomorrow I'll try to decide what I want to quilt where - 
There are SO many options - 
I need to narrow them down a bit - ;))
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I think the blue will play nicely on that quilt. I don't mind changing colors on an art quilt, but on a larger quilt it seems like work.

I like the blue thread and look forward to seeing your quilting.
