Floating Squares -- Indecision

Weekends.  Payday.  Christmas.  Birthdays.  The day Block Magazine arrives in the mail.  These are things I look forward to.

Block Magazine just arrived and I dove straight into my scrap bins to make the Floating Squares quilt.  All was going well until I got ready to quilt it.  What thread should I use?  I know that I will use one of my FabuLux threads by WonderFil, but which one?

These are my choices:


Cloudy Skies (black, white, gray) from the neutral collection, to bring out the black and white squares:


Hint of Lime (Lime, Lime-r, Lime-st) from the bright tonal variegated collection, a shade duller than the main fabric:


Neon Lime from the neon collection, a shade brighter than the main fabric:


Neon Lemon from the neon collection, a shade brighter than the accent fabric :


Mellow Yellows is from the bright tonal variegated collection, a shade duller than the accent fabric:


I also considered going wild and using one of two hot pink threads and hot pink binding, but I have decided against it.

Which would you choose?  And what color binding would you choose?  I can use black, lime, or bright yellow.

I think I would go with the Mellow Yellow and do a yellow binding.

Love the colors in the quilt! I would use the hint of lime thread and either yellow or black binding. It looks like you will be having fun! Take care and God bless, Cory

I'd probably use Hint of Lime and a black binding. But I have always been a bit of a traditionalist.

Can't wait to see what you chose.

This quilt has a lot of negative space. I think the Cloudy Skies thread with black binding would look really good.

I think I would opt for neon lime and black binding.

I'm loving the hint of lime variegated. Black binding to make a bold frame.

I chose the hint of lime with black binding as well. I was surprised at how many chose that. Don't forget to post the finish.
