    Most of mine are sheets. I cant afford the amount of fabric to cover the back of all the quilts I make. If I only used fabric, I could only do maybe one or two a year. I say yes, use the sheets. I find it much easier and they seem to last forever- some of mine are 30 yrs old.

    I think they would be ideal. The 'olden day' quilts were always made from old clothes and flour sacks, so I would go for it as long as the other fabric you use is of similar quality and weight so that you don't get too much uneven wear.

    Goodwill cant keep enough in stock. I buy them up as quick as they come in. You can get nice fabric cheap when buying sheets.

    This sounds great. Crazy question - do you leave the sheet whole (after cutting the hems) or do cut it and the piece it together?

    Leave it whole unless you have to add length or width to make it fit the top.
