TEN YEARS and still going strong!! In fact, ever since we introduced this novelty “not-so-solid” solid in 2007-08, they’ve just gotten better with time —
What separates our AGED MUSLIN from the look-alikes is a special dyeing technique that creates a faded, distressed, look. The result is an inherent overall shading that gives the cloth gives its rich, suede-like appearance. These qualities make our AGED MUSLINS an interesting complement for prints in pieced quilts, where a true solid would read too “flat”, and a texture print isn’t quite right either.
- The 100% cotton range began with a few neutrals in paper-bag tones
- Then it expanded to include blues and greys — Pair these with the season’s best denims & chambrays.
- Next came the dusty midtones (NEW AGED MUSLINS)
- And in 2017, we added eight saturated fashion colors to the New Aged Muslins category.
Perfect for Trendy and Traditional Quilts, Home Décor, Fashion…
- They’ll give an authentic, aged look when paired with reproductions, or a casual effect when blended with contemporary prints.
- AGED MUSLIN’s weave is slightly tighter than standard quilting fabrics, making it an excellent background fabric for appliqué, embroidery and other forms of handwork.
- The collection also plays well on its own, as you can see in “Stargazing”, shown below our new Aged Muslin BOM program by Krisanne Watkins of Quail Valley Quilts. Watch for details on line soon!(Begins September 2018, 91” x 91”)
