Thank you for all your feedback. I have a bolt of natural cotton that I purchased to dye. Then our pal arthritis hit my spine and I can no longer stand long enough to dye!! Solo, I got to thinking about how I could incorporate it into my quilts. If I put some of it into the top, then the back could be pieced together. Though not my favourite method of quilting, it's really lovely muslin and it would work.
Out, I'm glad you're still with us. It's great to hear from you again.
My Quilts of Valor group uses muslin on the backs of those quilts and it works great. When you operate on a shoe string supported solely on donations, you have to find more reasonably priced fabrics & muslin fits the bill nicely.
Janet thats a great use for those imported quilts!
I also use muslin, for both piecing and for the backs of some of my quilts, both the bleached and the natural (cream colored).
There are different weights and thread counts for muslin, you just have to be careful which one you purchase.
Sandy, I have seen those chairs too & my heart just aches when I do. If someone wants that look, they can buy the "slave made" quilts at Wal-Mart & use them to upholster furniture with.
Annette, I used moda muslin on my double irish chain and it really pairs up nicely with cotton quilting fabric. Its very lovely to hand quilt too!
Sandy, they are pretty, but I would have a hard time using a vintage quilt as upholstery fabric, unless it was a good way to preserve parts of a cutter quilt.
