Cozy

Did you have a cozy weekend?  I'll confess, ours had some rough patches.  That flu was no easy beast to shake.  A week at Disney followed by a week of flu created an always-scrambling, never quite caught-up feeling that manifested in one cranky mama.  I finally shook that feeling yesterday, when I started a new quilt.  I really, really needed to do some fun sewing - creative therapy - after and during which I found grace to enjoy our Sunday together.  And enjoy my children.  And appreciate my husband.  I'm so thankful to feel better!

So, speaking of cozy, this is our new duvet cover.  Finally finished!  I was nearing the final stages when my friend Tammy, of Marmalade Fabrics, asked if she could borrow my Bottled Rainbows quilt for her booth at Quilt Con. Well, that sealed the deal!  I was really ready to replace our bed quilt anyways.  All that Bottled Rainbow energy has been fun, but it was time for something more fitting for the two of us - myself and Brandon.

We're both enjoying the peaceful simplicity of our new bed covering.  It looks so nice with the curtains too!  Now, the only thing I'd change is the flooring.  But, hey, that's not my department.

  1. I would love for you to share the details of finishing for your duvet-closure, seams etc... I am thinking of doing that with a quilt top I have and a comforter I like but not all the time.

  3. Gorgeous! I agree with Colleen... would you share the details of the construction of your duvet cover. My main question is did you lined it?

  4. Great looking duvet cover! I like the star made from triangles and it's really great off-center like that.

  6. Glad you're feeling better. And just a little glad to hear I'm not the only one who gets cranky after a couple of weeks like you've had. :) The duvet cover is beautiful, a lovely fresh look. x

  8. Really lovely duvet cover ~ did you applique the star on? Glad to hear you're feeling better.
    I did have a cozy weekend. It was in the high 20's here in Portland, OR, so I sat around with the kitties, did some knitting and hand paper piecing and watched reruns on tv. It was lovely!

  10. Love the new duvet cover! I suppose your handy husband can redo a floor np, but if you are looking for a flooring company, we know a good one!

  12. love your new duvet! I have a quick question about it-- when you pieced it, did you do anything to the back of the quilt top for your pieced seams? I'm making a pieced duvet top now and worried about the seams fraying or just generally being weaker (and not having any quilting to provide additional assurance that they will stay put!).

  13. oops just realizing you probably appliqued your star on, so my question may not apply... :)

    1. Yes, I did applique it, to simplify things. You could consider quilting your duvet top to batting only just to give it strength?
