Help! Making ‘quilt’ from diff. sheets
My daughter wants me to take 1 flannel sheet, and 1 regular, sandwich batting between, and quilt. Sounds easy enough for a 1-quilt veteran! LOL!!! Got everything I need, but I have questions.
1 – I’ve got a non-bendable back (titanium rods) and can’t lay the quilt out on the floor. Can’t use the dining room table because she’d see what I’m doing. Has anyone successfully pinned a quilt sandwich together from a seated position? I do have an adjustable ironing board.
2 – I bought some blanket binding, but I was wondering if I need to do anything different at the top end of the sheet. The double or triple layers will be harder to sew. I plan to match the top of one sheet to the bottom of the other. Does it really matter? Should I take out the top & bottom hems & make them smaller/narrower, like the sides???
3 – The flannel sheet is thicker than any I’ve had before, and the regular sheet that looked nice & substantial in the package is thinner than I’d like.
And I’ve got to be finished by Christmas Eve!!! Sigh. At least it’s all washed & will be ironed tonight. I’ll open the batting & hang it over the shower rod so it’s relaxed & ready to go.
ANY help at all will be greatly appreciated!
