Above are 7 quilts, some 10 yrs old, some 26 years or older! They don't make them like they used to. Even with their minute holes and iffy fabric. They have held up 200x better than the new quilts I bought from Target. Those quilts bunched up their batting the first wash. :o( And I hate the new "silky" feeling bamboo? fabric quilts. I don't have money to buy better made quilts.
So I saved some of our favorite top sheets from sheet sets.
Above I made 9 duvet covers from 18 twin size top sheets, for the everlasting quilts. :o)
I almost died of boredom sewing the 3 looooooooooooong sheet sides together. It took about 5 hours. When finished the seams needed pressing. They did not want to lay nice. I took a 2 hour nap first and then pressed and folded them.
I forgot my sew on velcro, to put on the open end of the duvets. Tom is going home for the mail and will bring it up tomorrow. The teens want their duvet now!
I'm painting nothing lower for fear kids will chip it.
In the morning I hope to sew shirt number 2 for my sweet 13 yr old son. A much more fun project!
Happy Creating! God Bless!
Thanx for visiting! (((HUG)))
