Default quilt storage

I need to store some quilts my mother made.
I plan to lay them flat on a bed. I bought a roll of unbleached 100% cotton muslin to separate them.
Here's the question.
Do I need to wash the muslin before I use it? It was well packaged from amazon and looks clean.
The reason I ask is that I have washed some that I cut and the ends frayed in the washing machine. I'm afraid the threads might clog the pump on the machine or do other damage.
I tried using her pinking shears to cut it, didn't help.
Sewing the ends to stop the fraying is beyond me.
Any help or advise would be much appreciated.
Thanks, Mike.
