Muslin is a white or natural open-weave cotton or cotton blend. This fabric is worthwhile for backing quilts and is also used in shadow quilting and applique.

When working with vintage fabrics, try combining different colors and patterns. Like an old patchwork quilting, match stripes with checks and dots with plaid to create a look that's eclectic but still pulled together. You can achieve this by using one repeating color or element in each piece of fabric as a way of pulling them together.

Some European, Victorian age, quilters used every scrap of cloth they had left over from other projects in piecing together what was know as a crazy quilt. Many of these were often used as decorative showpieces for their homes.

Bear's Paw. If you ever wondered what Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, or Jefferson Davis had on their quilts, it was probably a Bear's Paw pattern. A favorite of the 1850's, the Bear's Paw pattern is known for its Sawtooth borders, its block patterns, and of course, its "paw prints." Most patterns had four paws with each symmetrical paw pointing in a different direction. Other quilts had the "paws" that were displayed in circles, while others still had only 3 paws. It was one of the most varied designs of the 19th century and also one of the most popular.
