    There are two kinds of the bed mattress covers in securing the cover to avoid it gets out of place .

    a. One is having elastic bands sewing at four sides of the cover to secure it in place.

    I am fitting the bed sheet onto the the mattress. I am putting the bottom sheet on (that's the sheet you sleep on and it always goes on the mattress, so there's no need to say so).

    1. What do we call the inner quilt after the quilt cover has been removed. We don't wash the inner quilt normally so it is always covered with a quilt cover. It's just called 'the quilt' or 'the duvet'.

    2. Shall I say :
    a. I am fitting the quilt cover on the quilt. or
    b. I am putting the inner quilt back into its cover.

    3. What is the difference between quilt and blanket? A quilt is stuffed with feathers and a blanket is made of wool.

    Re: bedsheet

    Regarding the last section of your question, I would call those two types of sheet a fitted sheet and a flat sheet.
