There’s nothing like the feeling of crawling into bed with freshly laundered sheets, but putting the quilt cover on the quilt can be a tedious and frustrating task.  The girls at DIY Decorator have prepared this simple video to show you the easy way to put your quilt cover on.

A clever and easy way to put on a quilt cover. This method is used by housekeeping staff in the big hotels who have to make beds on a daily basis.

The trick is using the inside out flip to effortlessly flip your quilt cover onto your quilt.  This is the method used by housekeeping staff in the big hotels who have to make beds on a daily basis.  Watch the video and give it a try.

STEP BY STEP – The Easy Way to Put a Quilt Cover On

  1. Lay the quilt across the end of your bed
  2. Turn your quilt cover inside out and lay it on top of the quilt
  3. Put your hands inside the quilt opening all the way in to the top corners of the quilt
  4. Grab a hold of the top corners of the quilt through the quilt cover
  5. Flip the corners of the quilt towards you so the quilt cover flips over the top of the quilt
  6. Shake the quilt (holding onto the corners) so the quilt cover falls down over the quilt
  7. Lay the quilt on the bed and tuck both bottom corners of the quilt into the quilt cover
  8. Holding the bottom corners, give the quilt a shake, then button up the quilt cover opening

Do you struggle to put on your quilt covers? Or do you have a clever tip you can share?

This is my favourite easy technique! I swear by it! I once tried a fancy one where you roll the quilt somehow but no matter what I did it ended up inside out haha.

I’ve seen the roll method Kez. It looks so confusing. I’d get it inside out all the time too 🙂

I have been doing it this way for years but I have recently started using the roll up method. This is much easier and the quilt sits inside the cover without all the shaking.

I haven’t tried the roll up method yet, I’ll have to give it a go, the others above are saying it’s a little confusing.

Yes! This is my favourite way of doing it too! I must admit, I have had moments when I have found myself IN the duvet (doona) cover, and started laughing out loud! I am now a big fan of the comforter sets!!

Yes, I purchased my son one recently and love that I don’t have to remove the insert (it’s his that I wash more often than everybody elses… boys).

Done this for years and when I’ve had to teach the kids to make their beds I taught them to climb inside the quilt to grab the two corners … It makes it fun though someone has to hand them the quilt corners and help them get out they are giggling about it.

Thanks so much for letting us share this on the blog. It’s great that so many people already use this method, and even better for those who didn’t know and were struggling to put their quilt cover on. Thanks again Kat xx

thank you so much Kylie for taking the time to share the video and your method, I’m certainly going to have to try it!

Even better – wash and hang the doona covers inside out (they fade less in the sun) and store them inside out too… then you can pop it straight on using this method!
