Response to hedgehog (Original post)

6. My grandmother did two twin size spreads

With thin ecru color cotton thread - the stuff sold for crocheting. Rather than doing the full spread, she did two strips for each and inset them into a sheet weight cloth, then crocheted an edging around three sides leaving the top edge plain.

She died in 1960 and Mom still uses those spreads, so they've held up well.
