Inspiration: Duvet from Layla Grace

There is something so peaceful and lovely about this bed found at Layla Grace. I love the cool colors which give it a nice, summery feel. The duvet retails for $223.00 and is made in a Fair Trade Factory in Indonesia. Not an outrageous price, but some of us might want to try our hand at making this ourselves. Here's a start:

Amy Butler's free pattern for the August Fields Duvet Cover calls for 19 different prints. I think most of us would be able to take this pattern and substitute 4 fabrics for the 19. Seriously, Amy Butler did the math, we get to play with fabrics!

Printed fabrics from Michael Miller: Ta Dots in Aqua Blule and Lime Green at Allegro Fabrics, Dandy Damask at Pink Panda Fabrics. Kona cotton solid in white from Robert Kaufman at Contemporary Cloth.

The addition of the ribbon border and ruffle trim give this quilt a feminine touch. To see how to make a ruffle trim, check out this tutorial by Moda Bake Shop: Princess Pea Blanket
