After much thought, I have come to the conclusion that since this is a vintage quilt top, I should hand quilt it. Here it is in my Ulmer Quilter:
This quilt top is bigger than I thought. Its a generous quilt size. When I was pin basting it I had to move furniture in order to have room for taping down the backing fabric and pin basting the sandwich together.
I used white muslin for the backing and Hobbs Heirloom cotton batting. Once the quilt is washed, it will have that wonderful crinkly antique quilt look.
