    Backed it with a $2 sheet I got at Salvation Army, sewed shoestrings to the inside the duvet & the outside of my down comforter, tied them together to keep the comforter in place inside the duvet. Used velcro on the bottom to keep the top & bottom together. Was fun.

    I used 25 batik fat quarters so it would be big enuf.

    One block. I did 5 across & 5 down.

    Buzzy is the reason I made it - my comforter was always dirty where he slept. Now I can wash the duvet more often.

    Gorgeous!! I love batiks, and have some that you used in your duvet. Buzzy looks very happy on his new duvet. :D :D

    Looks like a discerning admirer claimed it before you. :lol:
    That might be the ticket for me to make for DD's nice white down comforter. Love yours.
