19 Dec Christmas Sewing
I’m not making any quilts for Christmas gifts this year, but my sister asked me if I would make a duvet cover for my niece. Of course! We had fun at our LQS last week picking out these fabrics.
The top and bottom fabrics will be the center panels on the front or back of the duvet cover and the center fabrics will run down the sides. I’m using French seams so there won’t be any raw edges on the inside. I haven’t done a French seam in years. Hooray for the internet to reassure me that I remember how to do it properly! (I’m also sure I have this information in a book somewhere).
We bought a long zipper to put across the bottom and I’ll be attaching some ties to the duvet itself and inside the cover so it doesn’t shift around all over the place. The front and back panels are finished. I cut them a little long because I’m not sure how much ease I need to include to account for the puffiness of the duvet. Now to add the zipper, the ties and sew the front and back together. I hope she likes it!
