You have been a tremendous help, Sue. Thanks for all your time. Now down to the sewing room!!!!

Mary,
The purple (2123) is between Isacord 2910 and 2905, it was not with it's buddies in the sewing room. Oops.

I don't have 2148 (Blue Surf). My blues are Lakota Blue (2138) and Blue Ribbon (2161)

https://www.superiorthreads.com/shop/product/magnifico-polyester-thread-a-z-with-ewe-me-12-spools-set/

I just found this, keep clicking the picture and it gets bigger and bigger. Lakota Blue is more aqua-ish than Blue Surf. Use the search on the Superior site for a nice big view. On my monitor, the colors look pretty danged accurate.

I know you want to stick with Isacord, but if you need to purchase threads, Magnifico is wonderful to use and the price is quite comparable to Isacord. It's less expensive than what Isacord goes for the local shops around here. The nice thing about Superior is the speed of shipping and the flat rate shipping, and no state sales tax. Magnifico would work well with your existing Isacord. You'll only need spools, not cones.

When in doubt, make a trial sample.

Sue, I am having trouble with two of the thread numbers. You did not include an Isacord match for Magifico 2123 and 2148. You gave me a match for Magifico 2138 (Lakota Blue), which is a totally different blue from Magifico 2148 (Blue Surf), which is in the pattern.
You did not mention a match for Magifico 2123 February (purple). What is the closest match for this? I don't see either of these on the pantone chart.
Thanks so much. Mary

Sue, Thank you so much. That is a great panetone to isacord chart. It is so much more complete than the one I found. This really helps me a lot. I hope there are others who will benefit also. Thank you for the time you spent doing this.

Magnifico Panetone Isacord
2041 186C 1904
2179 5845C 1161????
2048 228C 2500
2061 109C 0600
2100 371C 5933
2053 116C 0605
2138 326C 4220????
2007 225C 2508
2161 294C 3335????
2097 390C no match similar to 6031
2035 1685C no match similar to 1342
???? means I matched the Magnifico to an Isacord thread shade card with real thread (not painted swatches).
I wrote "no match" if the match was close, but kind of off.
There may be new Isacord colors that aren't on my Shade card (#378 OESD).

With these numbers you can look at the Superior site to view the thread online to see if you have something similar already.
I'm just offering these numbers up with no guarantee. I'm convinced we all see color differently.

The reference chart used is here:
http://www.amann.com/fileadmin/download/stick/Colour_Conversion_Pantone_to_Isacord.pdf

The Magnifico numbers are from the set of threads made up for the BOM 2014 by Janet and Superior Threads.

Have fun!

I was able to find both conversion charts, but the panetone/Magifico numbers were not on the Isacord chart, except for two of the colors. Go figure!

You might consider using a Panetone chart to convert. There is probably an Isacord to Panetone. (google it) There is a Magnifico to Panetone on the Superior site. Panetone is like the universal color god of the world. You can use any colors you like and already have in the BOM.

Isacord is the thread I have and I am not interested in buying the magnifico. Does anyone have a conversion from the magnifico colors used in the quilt to isacord colors?
