So for the last fifteen years I've had the same Christmas duvet cover, one lovingly made by my mom for me before she lost her vision and couldn't sew. A few years ago I got a new duvet, and it's wider and longer. Nice, except for how it makes the Christmas duvet bunch and not cover my whole body. I dealt with it for a few years, but I got impatient this year, and made a new one.

I love scrappy look stuff, but straight lines are pretty much my kryptonite. The more lines, the worse I'm likely to screw it up. But  not only do I love patchwork, I've also inherited a million miles of fabric. So I tried to keep it super basic: just ten stripes. All of the fabric was too narrow, so I did french seams that I varied the placement of, so there wouldn't be a big stripe down the middle.

The whole bed:

The middle 3:


The bottom 3:


Twenty plus seams and only one screw up... one of the directional fabrics is upside down on one half of the stripe. For me, that's pretty good odds!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

It looks very festive!
You did a great job. It might be simple colour blocks, but it required neat sewing.
