I'm making a chemo quilt for a friend, and the heart was easy... but now I can't finish piecing until I decide on the background. Several quilters suggested a variety of whites to rest the eye. Another quilt shop owner suggested black, or black and white stripes.
Here's the mostly-pieced heart and the pattern. I have it drawn in squares, with centers in some. Do I make the squares white, with colored centers or black centers? Or make the squares black with colored centers? OR black AND white squares with colored centers? Oh, HELP!!!!
