    I have finished 2 more sheets. Hope they are adequate. I trimmed the top hem with matching fabric and FMQ'd it. Will mail them tomorrow.

    This one is a very light teal w/beige & purple butterfly print

    I think they are lovely and will bring comfort to a grieving family. You are very thoughtful for doing such a honorable service to them.

    Thank you

    I haven't thought about making sheets but those are very
    pretty. I take it you have to buy the backing fabric to get it
    wide enough. That would still be cheaper than sheets now days.
