I got this top done and on the frame. I've been mainly quilting with So Fine thread (and liking it), but I thought the mostly solids in this could do with a variegated thread like King Tut. But that gave me a lot of tension problems at first. And when the tension did appear balanced, the top thread kept shredding and breaking. So there were a lot of adjustments and rethreading in the first couple of passes. Finally got it to an acceptable balance with no more breaks in the navy/purple section. Tomorrow I have to change threads for the pale yellow skull, so I may have more opportunities for testing tensions :).
