Default Premium Muslin

It has been quite a while since I have purchased muslin, but I now need some for Dresden Plate background squares, and don't know what brand is best, or where to buy it. I think I have seen pros and cons here about JoAnn's muslin, but am not sure. I bought my last muslin at a quilt shop years ago, but am wondering if the other stores have a nice grade muslin. Input anyone? Thanks

I bought mine at Hobby Lobby and it has been very good to work with.

Legacy (from Joann's), Kaufman and Southern Belle are all premium and all are great. The 200 ct fabric is very nice.

JoAnn's sells Kaufman's Kona muslin, the same Kona muslin that you'll find in a quilt store for more $$.

Joanns sells kona cotton but it is not Kaufman. There has been a lot of discussion about this lately on this forum.

Personally I'm partial to Moda muslin. A couple of years ago, Hancock's of Paducah had a big sale & I got two bolts of it. I love it!

I use Southern Bell Creamy muslin from my LQS and made a whole quilt. It is great and washes great as well. The price was also great.
