What color thread should I use to quilt this quilt

That picture shows it on my floor (at a slight angle). I have since filled in the side pieces with dark gray so it looks as if the blocks are floating on the dark background.
The back will be the dark purple tiny print (if it's not obvious, all the fabrics are tiny prints). It was suggested to me by the quilting store person that I use purple thread to do the quilting, but when I got home I realized (duh) that that would put purple stitches all over the front. Will that look horrible against my lighter color non-purple blocks?
I've made a few quilts in the (distant) past and I've always used white thread for quilting. Will white look too obviously, um, white on the dark purple back of the quilt?
Any suggestions for what color thread to use highly appreciated.
