My Great Grandmother, Mae Stella Irvin's Quilt Top
I am looking for a background fabric for this Log Cabin quilt, so I may finish it. My Great Grandmother left us two, and this is the bigger pattern. I am thinking of "Patriotic Toile," but it may be too blue. JoAnn's has a mulitcolored star pattern on white that may be more appropriate. I am open to ideas. Heirloom Quilting says you should not use a background any darker than the lightest color on the front, and that is my primary limitation.
