    What do you think? This split nine patch is begging to be more than just a duvet cover! The customer is always right - except when the artist insists on more.

    Just line it and without batting quilt it. Then add the envelope back.

    I think this is a great idea, but I'd present it to the customer first. She would have to be more than receptive!

    the top will need quilting just to make it all hold together well over time. lots of seams in there.

    It's a spectacular quilt. I understand your desire to quilt it, however, you will have to do as your customer wishes. :wink: That is, unless you can talk her out of it!! :lol:

    No, don't do it without customer approval. It will make a significant difference in the weight of the cover, and that may be a factor for the customer. My sister refuses to use duvet covers on her down comforters, because they add so much weight.

    quilt the top with a thin-thin batt and plain muslin back then after it's quilted turn it into the duvet. so it has a quilted top. the customer wants a duvet...she wont want a quilt she can not put her comforter into.

    No worries, ladies. I hope you realize I am going to complete this as the ordered duvet cover. It just seems a shame to me. Feels incomplete somehow. But I'm not about to do it again so I can quilt one!

    I used to have a duvet cover that was quilted on top (with batting) and I used the down comforter in it in winter then took it out and used just duvet covet in warmer weather.

    But for a customer I agree with the "ask first" rule LOL

    I agree with the quilt it with only a light backing, then put the envelope back on for the duvet. That would make it great, and you'd both be happy!! Beautiful quilt top. It'll be wonderful no matter which way you do it.

    It's called a Split Nine Patch. Really a simple pattern. There are two HST's in each block. The rest is just keeping your darks and lights straight. You can do it too! Thanks to all for your nice comments.
