I spent two (2) weeks redecorating the master bedroom at our new-to-us house in rural Montana.  It's ain't rural in there anymore, I tell ya'.  



Eight+ yards of this Waverly print, about 500 inches of homemade bias strip, 7 snaps, about a spool of thread, and part of a king sheet set went into this as well as about 16-18 hours of cutting, pressing, and sewing (not including shopping, pre-washing and fretting times).



The bias strip is 1.5" wide, folded in half and pressed.  I sewed it into the seams on top of the duvet that are necessary to get a 54" wide fabric to cover a king-sized bed and into the edge seams of both the duvet and the shames.

I did many projects in the room, including making a "wood" beam out of a drywall covered beam:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422815.0#axzz2Qs53EG9q

The rest of the details and photos are on my blog: http://suddenlytaxidermy.blogspot.com/2013/04/purple-bedroom-majesty.html

That fabric is great. I have wanted to make a duvet for a long time.

Thanks!  I think this is the 3rd duvet I've made in my life and by far the hardest.  The last two were flat sheets sewn together and were full/queen sized.  The piecing, the size and the weight of this one was a challenge.  Sheets may have been less expensive, but I think the pattern/colors make it and the weight will help with dog-wear.  Gotta love a 50% off coupon for this kind of thing!
