what are the pros and cons of buying muslin?
1. bleach or unbleached
2. permanent press? or not?
3. 200 thread count or less?
4. 108" best to buy over all so there are not seams on the back of quilt
5. roclon? kaufman (kona)? or ??? brand?
unbleached muslin for antique type quilts I also tea or coffee stained i prefer non permanent press the more thread count the better quality rhw wider the better so no piecing I like kona cotton and the more pricer for back o quilt cheaper is fine for samples or demos
Way back when, when I started quilting, there was no such thing as a quilt shop. The muslin I could find was like cheesecloth. Today there are lots of different choices. I would go for a high-quality brand, like the Kona. Moda makes some real nice muslin too. Feel it. Do be careful about high thread count if you're going to hand quilt--it may make it difficult. I'm not sure about 200 count. That may not be too high. Your local quilt shop is your best resource. Ask!
