I am very tired today, Ive had a difficult night but I did manage to do some more strippies and still lots lots more to do.
My partner Jim asked me a question and I didnt know the answer to that one.

" Can Quilts be also made as Duvet Quilt Covers? with just the quilt top and backing which would be like a huge pillow slip to slip the quilt into."Please let me know the answer to that one

Thanks so much for the award. It may be a few days before I do anything with it.
I have made a quilt duvet cover. There's a picture on my Nov 15,07 post. I just made sure it had pretty large pieces and serged the seams so they wouldn't ravel with repeated washings. Some people also put a layer behind the pieced front and them the back so that the raw edges are hidden. I thought that might be too heavy and take too long to dry.

Is that the same as a Quillow?

I don't see why not. It would save quilting them.
I'm sure I read somewhere that someone had done that with most of her unquilted tops. She bought cheap duvet covers, took them apart and sewed in the unquilted tops.

Love and hugs Gina xxx
