I've decided to go ahead and invest in some silk thread. From what I understand, it blends the stitching in better than cotton or poly. I used the Gutermann I had on hand since it seemed like a good match for the background and this was just an experiment. I'll count it as done for now but may re-do when I get some more practice in.

It's about time we quilt fearlessly!
