I'm ready to quilt the top that my greatgrandmother made (and I finished) but I'm stuck on the color of thread.
The Lemoyne Stars are red and blue on a cream background. The back is also cream. I'm thinking I will just SID as I don't want to take away from the stars. My question is what color thread to use. I'd like to keep it true to the era that she made it - 1930 but there is no way I have the talent to hand quilt it. Should I use cream and just outline the stars, use cream and SID between the "blades" or use cream in the bobbin and red and blue in the needle and SID between the blades of the stars. The blocks are about 4 inches wide which will be quite a bit of space if I don't SID between. I need your help!
