    Those are wonderful. And what a beautiful quilt they will make. Just filled with memories.

    I agree a natural color musluin so that the focus remains on the feed sack part of the quilt . How lucky of you to get those :mrgreen:

    I can see pale yellow for a sashing or the off white muslin. Those are great blocks!

    I immediately thought muslin too! On point, cool. What a fantastic find- it has such a history for the quilt it becomes.

    I think I would go with muslin as well to not detract from the feed sacks! :lol:
    Yes, I think I would use natural colored muslin too. Those are such nice blocks. Your aunt is lucky to have a relative who is going to make a quilt with them. (too nice to stay in a box in the closet---lol)
