I've come to a conclusion. I don't think I'm going to put a bed skirt with my Granny's quilt.
shuffling bedding, I put a white sheet over the box springs to make it not stand out like a sore thumb. I think I like that enough for now and will live with it. I've still not landed on the perfect fabric for curtains and pillow shams. So, I pulled the white matelasse ones off the bed in the back bedroom and that is how it will be for a while. What do you think?
