Q1: What is a quilt cover?
A quilt cover is a protective sleeve that slips over a quilt or doona. Quilt covers have fasteners like buttons, zips, or press studs at one end. Cleaning a quilt cover is much easier than a doona, quilt or comforter. Also, quilt covers protect the inner and are easy to remove and wash. They also allow you to change the look of your bedroom quickly and easily, without having to buy a new quilt or comforter.

Q2: How to put a quilt cover on quickly.
Put the cover on your quilt in 9 steps:
- 1. Turn the quilt cover inside out.
- 2. Lay the cover on the bed. Ensure the opening is at the foot of the bed.
- 3. Lay the quilt on top of the cover.
- 4. Working your way down from the head of the bed, roll the cover and quilt together.
- 5. Invert the quilt cover opening around the ends of both sides of your bedding roll.
- 6. Close the cover (either by fastening the buttons or using the zip).
- 7. Unroll the bedding the opposite way.
- 8. Hold each of the bottom corners (including the inner) firmly in each hand.
- 9. Give a quick shake to settle the quilt into the cover.

Q3: What is a duvet quilt cover?
A duvet quilt cover protects the inner quilt or duvet from dust and dirt. It is easy to remove because it has fasteners on one end. The words duvet, quilt, comforter and doona are used interchangeably, although there are subtle differences between these items. Duvet, quilt, or doona covers are a relatively modern invention and are an improvement on traditional quilts and comforters, which are generally more cumbersome to wash.
