The Four Patch Posie craze overtook my online quilt guild. This top is going to be a wedding present.

Isn’t it amazing how you can cut up one piece of fabric and get so many interesting kaleidoscope designs for the blocks?

I had a few ideas of thread choices for the top. A quilt with all of those colors provides a great opportunity to use a variegated thread that will sparkle across the fabric. The three choices are: Fireworks, King Tut, or Red.
The first is a variegated thread called Lava from Superior Threads. The color is “Fireworks” and has a color change each inch. The colors include red, gold, green and two colors of blue!

Next is a blue variegated by Superior Threads called King Tut. The different blues flow together like water.

The last option is a solid red color which would also look nice but doesn’t have as much “jazz”. Which one would you choose? Can you guess which one my client picked?
