I prefer my miniature bedding to drape over the sides of beds,and sometimes ironing a fold in the right place is enough. But if not, as all our duvet covers and patchwork quilts are washable, I like to use Spray Starch to make this happen. I can wash it out if I change my mind and want to move a quilt from a bed to a sofa, or a single to a double bed or just arrange a folded quilt on the end of a bed.
Here's what to do...
- Arrange the duvet cover/quilt on the bed and decide where it should fold, this can be marked with dressmaking pins.
- Spray Starch on the reverse side of the bedding and use an iron to press into place.
- This technique also helps if you want the duvet cover to fold down at the top.
- Alternatively, if draping over the end of a bed, after starching put the cover on the bed and hold in place with pins until dry.
