    close the damper when not in use. some fireplace/inserts the doors are supposed to be tight like direct venting others are NOT supposed to be. consult a chimney sweep.

    Assuming that this is something that would never be put in place when the fireplace has been recently used ...

    If you're handy, you could easily build a basic frame and cover it with a quilt. I'd keep the quilt removable, even if you custom cut/fit it to the frame, so that it can be washed and stored more easily.
    I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!

    A better solution might be a chimney balloon, inflated in the chimney when not in use. These are available from Applied Energy Products in Canton Ohio, and JR Products. Be sure to remove them before starting a fire.
