Has anyone ever turned their quilt top into a duvet cover, how did you like it?
I've been working on a quilt top that is almost completed that I would like to turn into a duvet cover for our wool duvet. My idea was to quilt it to a backing with no batting, like making a summer weight quilt. I have never quilted a top before but thought I could do this on my domestic machine since I should not have to worry about bulk. I want to quilt it to a backing to stabilise it since there are lots of little pieces, so that the duvet does not rub against any piecing seams and the top is several inches larger than our duvet. Then after it is quilted to a backing I can add another layer as an envelope to hold the duvet.
How far apart should I quilt if my pieces are mostly 2-3 inches large and there is no batting? How do you bind your summer quilt type quilts without batting? Has anyone done something similar and how did it turn out? Thanks a lot!
