Cozy Sheet Quilt

Hello!  Today I have a new cozy quilt to share with you.  I found a couple nice soft sheets at the freestone and thought they'd look nice together.  So I trimmed them down, but some polyfill batting in-between them and pinned them up.  I would love to use cotton batting, but it's just a bit too pricy for me at this time.

I decided to try sewing it differently than I would usually do, and went corner to corner instead.  This wasn't as hard as I thought it might be at first.  Some of my seams bunched some but for the most part they were nice and even.

I cut up another old white sheet and made custom seam binding with it.  I use these tutorial to help me make nice seams in my binding.  Making the Binding/ Sewing the Binding and Finishing up the Binding.  I used a zig zag stitch and I find it holds very nicely.

So a very simple quilt to add some comfort for my family.  As you can see in the first picture, it fits over my bed, but it stops at the pillows and just barely goes over the sides.  That was as big as I could get it but it makes a nice cuddle quilt, and it's already been broken in. :)

Thanks for dropping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day!
