    I use muslin (good grade)when I want to make a traditional block. Most old country quilters used muslin (domestic) to set blocks and for the backing(lining). Sometimes I just like the old-timey look, I reckon.

    I like muslin for the backs, sometimes, depends on the quilt. I use muslin for lots of different things such as lining bags. I like a coarse muslin for doll bodies.

    Ya'll are making me jealous! :hunf: My local Walmarts all dropped fabric. They were great for muslin that my DH used for his Muzzleloader stuff. I knew I could always find batting and thread quickly.

    Now that they don't have fabric, I rarely go there. Count your blessings folks! You have many.
