Valentine String Quilt: Work in Progress

I started this string diamond quilt a long time ago (January), and had about half of the blocks pieced.  With my time off, I finally finished the remaining 26 this week.  I’m so in love with it!  The pattern is called “Valentine” from Elizabeth Hartman’s The Practical Guide to Patchwork: New Basics for the Modern Quiltmaker – I reviewed the book on Episode 40 of the podcast.

I’m thinking about turning it into a duvet cover, rather than a quilt.  Any thoughts?  Should I worry about not quilting down all those bias strips?   I’ll need to wash this regularly, so any input would be helpful.
