Easy to Sew Duvet Cover with a Minimum of Measuring
I fell in love with continental quilts, also called duvets, the first time I visited my future husband’s home in Wales. It was December and the weather was cold and wet, as only Wales can be.

I dragged my poor beau all over Cardiff looking for a duvet that I could take back to the States. What I hadn’t realized then was, we didn’t have duvets in the early 1980s (am I dating myself?), and we most certainly didn’t have covers for them. I hunted high and low, receiving only strange looks from department store assistants and having no luck coming up with a cover for my bunch of feathers. I finally decided I needed to make my own duvet cover.
