I'm working on a Dresden Plate quilt with 1930's reproduction fabrics. The goal here is to have a quilt that looks like an antique. I need to decide what to applique the plates on to. I've been looking at Kona cotton because it feels so nice. I'm thinking white but not white white because it would look to new. None of the stores around carry any of the off-white and it's so hard to tell online. Just by reading the names ivory sounds good, but so does bone and cream!!
I hate to pay $29 for a color card. Do you have any thoughts on what would look like old white for my Dresden plates?
