Yo GG quilt

I finally got started on free motion machine quilting the Yo Gabba Gabba or Yo GG quilt. I am using Connecting Threads Essential for the white. I will be using Signature for the black and I had to order some blue thread. You would think that someone with a stash of over 100,000 yards of quilting thread I would have the right color, but no. Along with the blue, I checked my thread for the Elmo quilt yet to be made and found I needed to get some thread for that. I ordered a spool of red, yellow (although I am not sure it is the right yellow), and cobalt blue all from Connecting Threads. I had some red and blue in my stash, but not enough. Connection Threads use to have a dark intense yellow, but they don't anymore so I will have to wait to see what this yellow thread I ordered looks like in person.

LOL I totally understand. I probably have 30 prices of blue fabric but when I need blue, I never have the right one! I use connecting threads, I live their colors too!
