Is the duvet velcro at one end, buttons, zipper or sewn closed all the way around?

How much fabric did you use?  That's brilliant! You go cowgirl!!

At the end where the cover opens I sewed it so that one was sort of sewn into the other, overlapping if you will... Its hard to explain, but I'm still thinking about adding some snaps. To answer the "how much fabric" question... I measured my existing comforter and took those measurements to the fabric store, explained what I wanted to do and they cut it all for me. I, or course, got less of the solid fabrics.

I love this set - nice use of colors, and definitely not something that you can easily find in a store.  It's very modern.

My thoughts on the closure (sounds like you did an envelope, fold-over type of closure) - I made one of these out of 2 great patterned sheets, and just sewed in about 5 super-sized snaps to the bottom of the duvet cover to keep the comforter in place during use. 

Another cute option is to sew in a few ribbon ties at the bottom.  Buttons would also work, but that was a little too complicated for me. Smiley
