I decided to stop in at the "Riley Blake" Corporate offices which are located in town hoping to catch my friend Gina who had quilted for me in the past and was now working full-time for them. She wasn't there but I was able to show the quilt to the owner of the company and one of the designers and they suggested using the charcoal grey thread. I was thrilled with the results and so was Loretta. The stitching pattern we chose was Champagne by Anne Bright. This was the second time I had used this pattern. It is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
