fasteners for a layered quilt (blanket)

HelgaPataki | Posted in Gather For A Chat on

Hi everybody, I need some advice. It’s difficult to explain what I want but here goes… I have several thin quilts that I want to apply fasteners to, so that I can attach them all on top of one another to formulate one large quilt. I am interested in doing this because cleaning is a lot more convenient and economical when I get to water-wash each thin quilt individually. I have a problem putting a lot of quilts together into one duvet cover, because they get all messy in side the bag. so I am really fantasized over this idea. I saw something similar with an Ikea quilt, but that quilt is only meant to attached with one more piece and not several pieces like my idea. What type of fastener would you suggest I use? Do you think I would have to remember the sequence that the quilts are piled? I thought of ties but that might be lumpy. If anybody has any ideas, I would be really grateful if you go into detail. I am all ears for any ideas. Thank you so much!

    buttons and buttonholes?

    Is there a place where you can make large buttonholes on the quilts?  Then sew a shank button on the bottom quilt and button all the quilts together.  At that point you can then put them into a duvet cover if you want.

      button holes on quilts (blankets)

      Hi Chris,

      that's an excellent idea... button holes.  I am now thinking about created two button holes on each four corners of the quilts (blankets).  Then I can draw one tie through each corner.  My main challenge is to be able to pile in random order and in random amount. Thank you.
