    My girlfriend has two professionally made twin bedspreads and wants to join them and make a kingsize bedspread. Does anyone have suggestions on how to go about this? I suggested taking them back to the store that made them.

    Do you have any pictures? It would be easier to make suggestions if we could see them :D:D:D

    Without seeing them , is there any way to take out the seams on the sides that will be joined and sewing them together ? how are the edges finished off ?

    I sure don't know but have been thinking about this & it seems like there would be a seam right down the middle joining them. Will that look okay or odd? You would of course have to remove the finished side before joining them but, I can't wrap my brain around how it would look on the top. Are they quilted?

    depending on your seams you would cut one in half and sew each half to the sides of the other twin so you have 2 seams and they are not in the middle. Clear as mud?

    I would need to see a photo. The biggest problem would be the length. Isn't a twin about 5" shorter than a king? You would also lose a couple inches in the width when it was resewn.

    Ladies, I got to see the twin bedspreads and we figured out a way to put the two together. They would have to be sewn on a commercial machine. Thank you for all of your input.

    I was wondering how this ended up and how did it work? I just ordered two
    Twins extra long for my king bed and you said you figured it out.

    take out the seam on one side and sew them together be sure to sew the batting together first, you will have to top sew one of the seams ...I would pinch the back seam line and sew it that way.. or one can hand stitch the back seam
