I love this Superior Gold #728 thread as I said previous it is a friendly/forgiving alternative to a true metallic. I need to order more after this quilt.
One can get a close-up look by clicking on the photo to get a better idea how little quilt line work is done in comparison to complex fabric pattern. This was pretty simple work though time consuming...about 4 hours for all 4 border areas. It makes the quilt special though so it is very much worth the time.
