This is what I do with my 18 year old. He has never been a between the sheets kid also. I guess it's from being too scared to place items in his crib as a baby. I made him a quilt "bedspread" which is folded on the bottom of the bed, of course, it mostly lies crumpled on the floor but surprisingly when company comes, he makes it up with the quilt.

Because a sheet will protect the quilt from body oils and soiling. It's easier to wash a sheet than a quilt.

You don't think it's rude and quite a jump from stated information to imply that someone who doesn't like a top sheet is lacking in hygiene?

Teen boys don't tend to love to fuss with bedding and room decor. I've got 4 of them currently, so I do feel like something of an authority on the subject. Their bathing habits do not correlate with the state of their rooms or beds.

I wash quilts often with no ill effects. They're really quite sturdy.

I think Velcro would really tangle your hair, wouldn't it? I'd be afraid it would.

Thank you, I really wasn't sure what to say to that question.

He is not into fuss, but he has noticed that I've made quilts for his sisters and I've only made him one several years ago.
I know he would like one.
The snap tape sounds like something to look into, and I might just not worry about it and just keep it washed. I so appreciate all of your comments and suggestions. Thanks again, Gina

Go to ourfamilyunit.com and take a look at the tutorial for bunk bed caps or snugglers, much like what you are thinking of making.

Exactly. I was deeply honored that my college bound son asked me to make him a quilt that he could take to school and use every day, and not worry about keeping special. I made him a nice but not fancy quilt, and he truly does use it. I hope he uses it up and I get to make him another.
