Sometimes I like overly busy scrappy quilts, and sometimes I like things a little less complicated and love to use solids...they can so enhance the print and pattern fabrics and lets face it, it helps your pocket book too.
Above are bolts of Kaufman Kona Cotton in Khaki, Ivory, Chocolate and Natural. I have collected these as my coupons from JoAnns allow. Since reading the TrueUp post relative to Kona at JoAnns, I feel pretty confident to purchase them there. I do have a Kona Color card to check the colors too.
The top bolt on the stack is something I just discovered at JoAnns the other day... Kaufman Premium Muslin, they had both bleached and unbleached in 44/45, 90 and 120 inch widths. I was actually going to buy white Kona that day and really couldn't decide if I should get the white Kona or the bleached muslin. The muslin had more of the feel of a regular quilting fabric, was a bit less money than the Kona and the wide width was pretty attractive for long sashing strips. I ended up buying the bleached muslin to try it out for a few blocks. (The unbleached muslin may have had a very few little brown specks so I could see in certain situations why you would want that or not.) So I am wondering if any of you have used this product or have any opinions & advice regarding this choice...bleached muslin vs. kona for white in blocks/sashing?
