    If it's 26 layers on the bolt that makes it app 13 yards. figure 2 rounds on the bolt per yard - you made a wonderful find.

    I also like it for background fabrics in quilts. I agree with Lori S.

    I love working with good muslin, so soft.

    What a great buy! I often use muslin as sashings in my scrappy quilts. The quilting shows up really good on the muslin (both machine quilting and hand quilting). I'm envious of you!

    Great find! You can always use muslin. The roughly figure yardage, 2 wraps around a bolt is 1 yard. Hope that helps.

    Here in Australia that is called unbleached calico not muslin. It looks great in a quilt with browns
