I have bought lots of clean but well used sheets at resale/thrift shops for quilt backings, and love them. They are very soft and are easy to sew through. Not to mention spending $3 for a queen size sheet makes that backing VERY reasonable in price. I usually only purchase solid colored sheets like white or ivory, but have had good luck with navy and black ones too when I can find them. I prefer a flat sheet, but have 'deconstructed' fitted sheets too.

I love to buy flannel sheet sets on sale in late January-February. In the past, I've gotten them at Sears, but Sears is carrying less stock in their linen section. Penneys also has them. Maybe it's worth a visit to Costco after the holidays...you get a lot of fabric for the price. And I like flannel backing.

My husband, however, was very conservative, and he was appalled when he came home and saw them. "We fooled around on those curtains!" he said.

Being much less conservative, I couldn't help replying, "not while they where hanging up, but I'm willing to try if you are!"

It was months before he could walk into the kitchen without averting his eyes, lol.
This totally made me laugh!

Bwahahahaha!! What a great story. THanks for the chuckle. Sounds exactly like something I'd say to my (ultra conservative) husband just to watch him squirm.
