After I posted the quilted duvet, a reader asked for the pattern.
She was in luck because I drew it all out in advance and actually kept my work. Most amazingly, I was able to find it!
You can use the how-to here to assemble the duvet itself. This is just a pattern for the quilt top based on a finished duvet of 88" x 68".
I've never used or written a quilt pattern...you've been warned.
Just for fun, here is what my draft looked like for the quilt. Remedial math and random scribbles.
DON'T follow this as a pattern since it was only a draft in progress.
Now, if you want to make a similar quilt, here is a basic pattern.
It's not to scale, but does show the overall construction.
High tech handwriting and all...
And my duvet for reference (flipped to match the sketched pattern)
Two yards of your main fabric (Curious George print on mine)
Half a yard of 4 or 5 different coordinating fabrics (these are the red, blue, green, yellow and white vertical strips on mine)
One Yard of a solid cotton (this is white Kona muslin on mine...)
1. Cut your main fabric into four strips running the full width of the fabric and measuring 16 1/2" tall (this is the Curious George print on mine). Trim your selvages. These are your 1 pieces.
2. Cut one full width piece of each of your coordinating fabrics, also 16 1/2" high .
3. Take your coordinating fabrics from step 2 and cut them into various width strips. Assemble them in a random order until you have four sections, each about 30" long. These will be your 2 sections.
4. Sew 1 together with 2 for all four A sections. You'll notice I alternated these left and right so that two of my A sections have 1 on the left, while the other two A sections have 1 on the right.
5. Piece together four 4 1/2" x 70" strips using your solid cotton. These are your B sections.
6. Join A to B, alternating until all the sections are joined.
7. Piece together one 6 1/2" x 70" strip. This is your C section.
8. Join C to the top edge of your first A strip (the head of the bed).
9. Piece together one 8 1/2" x 70" strip. This is your D section.
10. Join D to the bottom of your last A strip (the foot of the bed).
From here, make yourself a twin size quilt or make the duvet like I did.
And please feel free to ask questions since I have serious doubts that this will make sense to anyone but me.Pin It
