Where to find an old fashion bedspread?

I don't like the new fangled comforters....They are too hot! I wake up sweating, throw it off, then freeze! I want an old fashion cotton bedspread like the ones I grew up with!

I can't find one in a store, I'm kinda skeptical about the ones I've found online, bad reviews and not enough info on the heat factor.

Help! I need to sleep!

Vermont Country Store, also try Lehman's online. But I've seen cotton spreads in WalMart, Target and Penney's too--they are making a comeback.

Have you considered making them yourself or having someone do it? I don't sew, but I recall my mom, grandma, greatgrandma, aunts and neighbors getting together around big quilting frames and knocking out several in a day. Grandma would also keep a frame going and work on it herself. The frames wouldn't be too difficult to make if you have access to someone who is reasonably handy.

I (dimly) seem to recall that they would adjust how many layers of cotton they would unroll to determine how heavy the finished quilt was to be.

Good luck,

Ev
