An article in my favorite, and no longer published journal, The Quilt Life, (Oct 2014) discussed the setting for an antique star quilt using unlikely background colors of red and dark olive green. It makes the stars ZING. I am inclined to do that for this lone star quilt, and here are two audition photos:
|The center fabric is my first dyed attempt, and is browner than the photo.|
|This center fabric is a primitive weave linen looking cotton.|
I'd really like your opinion on the colors, though I am at the point in my life where I do what I like and I like my own color choices. Since I hardly ever ask for opinions, go for it!
