On anything above twin-sized comforters, mark the short sides (e.g., by running a "short + short + short" stitching along it.)

Similarly, on flat sheets, mark the short sides.

It's tough enough wrestling these things in place as is; I could do without the all-or-nothing bonus question at the end.

       Also, I think there should be a mark that shows the middle of the sheet so that it's easier to make sure it's even on both sides.

       Here's an idea: square sheets.   

       This reminds me of when I was young, we used to get biscuits in metal tins where two sides were like 2 mm longer than the other 2 sides, and being a little kid it took quite some time to grasp the concept of why it would fit one way round but not the other. So, unless there's a clear reason for using a rectangle, make *everything* square (or better yet, circular).

       My wife will really appreciate these suggestions.

       pottedstu, show us how to tesselate circles, and I'm there. In the meantime, can I add a recommendation for hexagons. Yes, hexagonal beds with hexagonal sheets - 6 possible orientations (or 12 if you include upside-down ones), all fitting. Add to this hexagonal desks and so on. Of course the problem is they don't work together so efficiently when there are hexes of different sizes.
