Making a Duvet from your Quilt Tops Learn how to create a duvet cover using a completed quilt top or by showcasing beautiful fabric(s). The duvets are easy to make and a great way to add variety to your bedroom decor. You can easily switch covers with the season or holiday. Covers are easy to remove and wash. You may purchase a basic comforter for the inside or freshen an old one with a pretty new cover.
Please allow 1-1 ? hr. for the class. It will be a lecture/demo class so you will not need to bring your machine. Feel free to bring a quilt top and we can discuss how to transform it into a duvet cover (this is not required). Bring a pen/pencil for writing and possibly something hard to write on.
