Sewing the Panels
The duvet cover is made of two panels sewn together similar to an extra large pillowcase. The first panel is a solid decorator fabric with embroidered borders, and the second panel is a coordinating print used as a lining. The duvet cover is finished with buttons.
1. For the embroidered panel, cut the solid fabric into 2 pieces of equal length. Cut one length of fabric in half lengthwise. Sew the pieces together to form one large panel by sewing a half panel to each side of the center panel, selvage to selvage. Press the seams open.
2. For the duvet lining, cut the coordinating fabric into 2 pieces of equal length. Cut one length of fabric in half lengthwise. Sew each half panel to the center panel, selvage to selvage, making sure that the panels are all oriented correctly, and matching patterns. Press seams open.
3. Measure the down comforter for the correct dimensions. Measure for the embroidered panel as follows:
Panel width: Comforter width plus 1" for seam allowances
Panel length: Comforter length plus 1/2" seam allowance plus 6" for button placket
Cut the panel to size, keeping the center panel centered. Finish the raw edges using a large zigzag.
4. Measure the down comforter for the correct dimensions. Measure for the lining panel as follows:
Panel width: Comforter width plus 1" for seam allowances
Panel length: Comforter length plus 1/2" seam allowance plus 4" for button placket
Cut the panel to size, keeping the center panel centered. Finish the raw edges using a large zigzag.
 

Embroidering the Border
1. Open HorizonLink. Left click on Embroidery Edit. From the menu, left click on Open, and open Border_1_22.
2. From the menu, left click on Print Setup. For the option Template Mode, select Colour Template. Left click on OK.
3. From the menu, left click on Print. Adjust the number of copies to 20.
4. The printed templates have a faint grid marked on the paper. Trim each template to 8 x 8 grids.
5. Open Border_1_23, and print two templates.
6. Measure the prepared panel from the seam to the outer edge. Measure the same distance from the lower edge of the panel. Mark a line this distance from seam to seam, using a removable marker.
7. The embroidered border will use the seam line and the marked line as the center line for positioning the embroidery designs. Position the templates for Border_1_23 at a 45? angle at each corner. The leaf design points to the outer edge of the duvet cover. Space the templates between the corners, and mark the position of each embroidery design. There should be approximately 17 or 18 embroidery designs plus the corners.
8. Hoop the fabric with stabilizer for each embroidery design. Embroider the designs. The designs can be hooped one at a time, or use the largest hoop and embroider the designs one motif at a time, using the jog keys to position each motif at the marked crosshairs.
9. Embroider the corner motifs.
10. Use the templates to mark the position of the embroidered border along the side seams. Leave the upper 6" of the panel clear of embroidery.
11. Embroider the motifs using the crosshairs for placement.
12. When all embroidery is complete, remove the excess stabilizer, and press the embroidery from the wrong side.
 

Complete the Duvet Cover
1. On the upper edge of each panel, fold and press a 2" double hem. Edge stitch in place.
2. Match the remaining three sides of the embroidered cover to the lining with right sides together. Pin in place. The embroidered panel will be 2" longer than the lining. Fold the button placket over the upper edge of the lining. Sew the three sides of the duvet cover with a 1/2" seam allowance. Finish the seam with a large zigzag.
3. Make buttonholes in the double hem of the lining, spacing the 10 buttonholes evenly across the width of the duvet cover.
4. Sew buttons to match the buttonholes.

Enjoy!
