This is the duvet cover WIP for Thing 1's twin bed. Construction is currently stalled. I was in such a fever to finish it several weeks ago, did too much sewing and then my back went bad. And I haven't been able to get back into it, even though my back is better. It's a mental thing.
I really love how the colors have turned out. I'm glad I didn't stick with my original idea. This photo is not current, it was actually taken before any of the squares were sewn together. Now they are all sewn together except for sewing the two halves of the whole top together.
I'm stalled also because I'm not sure how to do the backside. I want to be able to flip it over and have a whole new look for the bed. I think I'll use a patterned fabric that will work for winter since this is so summery looking and bright, but keep the patchwork to a minimum. Ideally, I will find a fabulous and beautiful coordinating flat sheet that I can use as one whole piece for the back. Yeah, you know it. I can dream.
