I didn't read it carefully enough. You already added the extra layers The purpose here to to secure the seams.

That is a beautiful top. I have also been thinking about making a duvet cover. I have a feather comforter, and the cover that I bought for it many years ago is very plain (maybe ugly) and starting to show some wear. I hadn't thought about piecing a cover, but that would combine the best of two worlds - a lightweight feather comforter with a pretty pieced top. I would probably quilt it fairly extensively, to protect the seams and to make the top even more beautiful.

Very pretty quilt but have no idea of how to quilt it. I am sure someone on this board will be very helpful to you.

I made a duvet cover similar to the way you've done yours. I used flannel to back the top and quilted it by echo quilting along the seams. The pattern was a large half square triangle so it was pretty easy to do the echo quilting. I used it for years and it was washed regularly as we had 6 dogs at the time that all got on the bed. It held up just fine.

We used to do this with our quilts, too. The cover is easier to wash. The actual quilt just got hung on the wash line on a sunny day. We put a few ties to hold the duvet in place. One in each corner and a few spaced around. Twelve would be enough and would be easy to snip for the washing and then replace.

Or can I get by with SID along the sashings? It won't be washed very much, but I also don't want unraveling seams. Thanks for your advice.

If I had put this much work into a quilt top (or duvet) I would definitively do a denser quilt pattern than stitching in the sashing. It is not only the washing, but the use of (plus Kitty) that causes wear and tear on the piecing.

I am not saying “quilt it to death” but it needs to be more dense than ditching the sashing because of the smaller piecing. I do not determine the density of my quilting by the “suggestions” on the batting wrapping. I determine it by the type of piecing on the quilt top and the “look” I want.

My thoughts exactly, the seams must be sewn so not to ravel like crazy when washed. No idea as to just how much quilting be it has to be attached well to the lining.

TAMARATJO,In essence you want to make a 'pillow case' for the older comforter. Love the top shown.

Thanks everyone. Ann912, I did not have a pattern. I was inspired by a quilt by Planted Seeds Designs named Flutter. This is my interpretation of the quilt. https://plantedseeddesigns.com/colle...oofly-patterns
