    Gail, Do you have a comforter inside it?? Not sure what you mean.
    We have a down comforter that never stays put and I thought about making a duvet cover for it.
    Love your cover!!

    There is a down quilt inside. Did you get my instructions? This is my first post and I couldn't re-open the instructions after the post. I just wanted to double check that I attached them correctly.

    Copied and pasted it here for those who can't download.

    Directions for Quilted Duvet Cover


    FRONT: Line light weight batting to front with muslin and quilt.

    Open Edge:
    Attach folded band, matching back for buttons to front with raw edges together. Sew through layers. Fold to back of muslin and hand stitch.


    BACK: Measure five inches longer then front for button hole band. Fold 2 inches twice for fold when stitched.

    When assembling front and back backstitch 12 inches from open edge to corner. Leave a half inch margin around quilt into open edge and backstitch.

    Center button holes and leave ten inches apart.
    Sew buttons.

    thanks for the directions - this is on my 'to do' list for my daughter's signature blocks from her wedding. I hope it goes together as easy as you make it sound.

    I too have made some of my quilt tops into duvet covers. I have a bargello right now that I will try and take a picture of.

    The attachment I see is saved in .docx, the newer MS Office extension. Most people can read .doc, the older version, but not the .docx.
