    What a great find!! I agree with you, Lori, I use muslin the same way.
    When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love.

    I would love to have such nice muslin in that amount. I make cloth dolls out of muslin and good stuff is hard to find. Like you said, too thin. I also use it as background for hand applique quilt blocks. Great find and buy.

    I often use muslin for fabric dying or whole cloth painting.
