Our poor bed suffered from needing a serious makeover. The quilt that was on there I made a few years back and it had been patched up so many times; it was finally ready for retirement. Right now I just don't have the energy to make another quilt so I just opted for the easy way out, a duvet cover.
The design is a giant pinwheel pattern, and for one of the contrasting fabrics I used Denise Schmidt's latest fabric, thistle leaf. I got the idea from one of my favorite craft books, Last-Minute Patchwork, a book I go back to often for inspiration.
