My guess is most people choose a white for the quilt-top background, but there are many whites. Do you have any favourites? How about manufacturers?
To mention one example, I really like the Bonnie & Camille fabrics by Moda, but the background isn’t white-white, but rather a creamy white. You know? In Kona solids by Robert Kaufman, this seems to correspond to the Snow hue. I have a little cut of it for a WIP, but my preference without question is Kona White, when placing the two next to each other.
I’ve heard somewhere that the inuits of Greenland have a huge bunch of names for different shades, tints, and tones of white hue (I suppose there’s just one white hue? never had this thought before). Perhaps it’s a myth only, but then again when I look at my own home, there are so many colours of white that I couldn’t possibly count them all.
What do you think of white in general? If you add a bit of a hue to it, do you prefer a warmer or cooler version of it? “Version” seems like the word to choose now :)
