    My sister only uses muslin for the backing. She loves the look of the white backing - like our grandmothers used. I like either with or a print so my long arm quilting mistakes don't show!LOL.

    Mostly muslin

    This quilt has mostly muslin for setting together the 9 patch blocks and some really old stuff under the flower blocks. The old muslin is better then the new muslin but after it was washed I really liked it.

    Wow! I am sure enjoying the pictures of all these beautiful quilts. Knowing that muslin is used in each one, I can feel the softness from here.
