I have been following these threads for some time now and finally decided to join. I have learned so much (1st is that I can spend waaaay toooooo much time reading it all). I have not done any quilting yet but have been sewing and crafting for about 60 years (my Mom did a lot of crafts (including all hand quilting large quilts) & I always helped. I have been collecting books & patterns so will start something before very long.I noticed the mention of duvet covers. I would like to do that. Tell me how you put it together: do you back the top and quilt the 2 layers and then add a an unquilted layer to make the backing? Or do you just do a top and back with no quilting? Do you button it on so that it stays in place? Love all your ideas and avitars & signatures.
