Default which fabric for this pattern?

In your opinion, do you think this pattern lends itself to civil war fabrics? I don't think it's a civil war pattern, per se. I have the pattern, and have been collecting civil war fabrics for it, but now I am starting to doubt my choice. Might it look better with homespuns? Also, I just bought "Civil War Legacies" by Carol Hopkins, and might want to use my fabrics for one of those quilts instead

I much prefer civil war for this. It will look better with civil war fabrics, unboubtedly. Go with your first instinct.

I agree. With all those greys and blues, and the historic "feel" of the quilt, I'd easily do it in Civil War reproduction material.

Chiming in to say I agree with the others - I think it would work well in Civil War fabrics.

That's a beautiful quilt pattern. I agree with all the others....I think the Civil War fabrics should be used for this one. You'll have to show us the finished product.

Civil War fabrics would be good. If I were making it, I would probably use Moda Bound to the Prairie fabrics because it would give it a more country feel and I love those fabrics!!

The name of the pattern is Rolling Stars, by Whistlepig Creek Productions. I bought it at my LQS, but I see that Connecting Threads has it for half of what I paid! http://www.connectingthreads.com/Pat...__D10076D.HTML
