Plumped up - Scaled down

jill here....A short while ago we made a plan for creating more samples.  One of our patterns that has been more difficult to show is our Duvet Buffet.  It looks better with the comforter inside but is too bulky to hang and there isn't room for a bed in the quilt shop.  I've always liked those displays where there were miniatures of the actual product - just cute.  So..... I created 3 scaled down versions of the duvet.  The insides are finished just as the pattern describes.  They really look like a big TV pillow! (And could be.)

The pattern utilizes fabric amounts efficiently.  All the seams are finished and stitched down to make them laundry friendly (one of the perks for us pet owners who can't say "no").   And, its gender friendly, depending on fabric selection.  I've made it several times in "collections" of fabrics and batiks.
Reverse side with velcro closure
The reverse side can be a whole new scheme.  These fabrics blended with the front but in a more traditional style.

So here's to Buffets, big or small.  Starting Saturday, our trunk show is making its first out of town appearance in Sioux City, Iowa at Heart and Hand Quilt Shop.  In April, I'll be talking to the Siouxland Samplers Quilt Guild.  I look forward to meeting you.

Amazonian Insects, not bed bugs!

Until next Tuesday...
