11 days

was all the time I had to make this duvet cover for my brother's girlfriend. From start to finish.


What guidelines was I given? "yellow tulips in the center, with purple and green." For a double size bed.

I came up with a design in EQ5 on Wednesday and ordered the center panel off of ebay. Had it on Friday. Went fabric shopping on Saturday. Cut the borders on Sunday. Sewed it all up on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Including backing. Re-did the backing on Saturday as I was having a very hard time coming up with a way to keep the stupid thing closed.



Delivered it Sunday morning (Valentine's Day) bright and early.
I really hope she loves it!

Beautiful work! And to think you got it done in such a short time. IMPRESSIVE!! Hope you are staying warm, we're getting another bout of snow here, I love the snow...just wish it wouldn't stick to the roads.
