I want to turn a quilt top into a duvet cover....since I haven't yet started the quilt top, I'm looking for some advice on whether or not I should back it before making the duvet "envelope".  If I use a serger to piece it do you think that will be sturdy enough so the seam allowances won't get too stressed when the owner (my son) takes the cover off for laundering?

One suggestion is to back it and do some light quilting to keep the top attached to the backing, then use that piece with a third to make the duvet envelope.

Absolutely no experience with doing what you're talking about, BUT - my htought is to back it.  I think that there would be too much stress on the pieced top otherwise, and it wouldn't last too long.  I don't knwo how much you would need to "quilt" it to keep the top and the backing together, but I would back it to protect the seams and give it some longer life. 

I'd love to know how it comes out - are you going to post pics on the completed projects board?

I'd like to know how it turns out as I'd love to make a pieced duvet cover - I am thinking maybe a string pieced one on muslim foundation?

back to quilting...hurray and I dusted my art material Cheesy
