Recycle Mattress Cover for Quilt Filling

When making quilts, I use old (clean) mattress covers for the fill. Cut to the size that you need.

Great idea. I have never used a mattress pad but my first quilt I ever made, I was a young girl of 17, I used an old Chenille bedspread in it. The top was simple double knit squares and I tacked it. I was filling my hope chest. 30+ years later my daughter used it so much the back disintegrated. I clipped the ties and will be putting a new back on it this winter, she wants it back. Maybe I can get that done and surprise her. Thanks for reminding me! :-)

I take old mattress pads and use them for batting between two old flannel sheets for the homeless shelter in the winter. I work on them in the summer to have ready for the winter. They are really warm and light weight and most appreciated.
