I didn't want to waste any fat quarters or other fabric that might one day make it into a quilt, but I needed to make a LOT of practice sandwiches for FMQ. I'm using fat quarter size pieces of bleached muslin I found in my hoard along with leftover batting from quilts & other craft projects. Since the muslin is white, I use colored thread to practice so the stitches are clearly visible. I consider the batting free since it's all leftovers & while I already have quite a bit of the muslin (we keep it around for pattern making, crafts, etc) even if I had to buy it for this purpose it's a lot less expensive than most other fabric. (I buy it by the bolt at Joann's when it's on sale or with a 50% off coupon, so a bolt winds up being about 25.00- 30.00)
great idea the muslin by the bolt.
