    White or Cream background fabric

    It seems I remember a thread (or perhaps it was just a post in another thread) about good fabric to use for white or cream background fabric. Can't find it. I don't care for the tone on tone whites. (I've not found a design I liked very much.) I want a substantial weight white or cream fabric that the seams won't show through. I don't care to use muslin. Any ideas?
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I would use Kona Snow. It's not a stark white, but it's really not a cream. It has a good weight to it, I think.

    I also like the Robert Kaufman Kona cottons. They offer several options in whites to creams:

    I used the Kona Cream color recently and loved it....nice weight. But be sure you get Kaufman brand.

    I used the Kona cotton for background (one of the cream colors) for my Dresden Plate and it turn out real nice.

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.
