In fact, we can help you to be an informed consumer, giving you all the information you will need to pick out the right goose down comforter for your home. We have evaluated many down comforters, looking deep into durability, appearance, and performance. With down comforters, the filling and construction remain the most important factors. We looked at comforters to make sure they were made and sold in compliance with the industry standards. This is studying the composition and feather specification claimed by the manufacturer.
Baffle box stitching is important as it maximizes strength, thickness and is responsible for preventing any shifting or corner-clumping in the comforter. Baffle box stitching creates the flatter, smoother version of down comforters, as opposed to a sewn-through box stitching which shows as more fluffy and loftier. Baffle box stitching measures usually between 6 and 15 inches.

If you live in a chilly climate or in an a home with poor insulation, you know what it means to get cold at night! For these homes, you want high loft (meaning lots of material between the outer layers) and a material that will hold in heat, like down, down alternative or wool, to help you get and stay warm for hours on end, so look for a fluffy box-stitched quilt to do the trick. This one is made from 100% polyester and a down alternative to make it both hypoallergenic and more affordable and can be used with or without a duvet cover.

In this review we selected the best backpacking quilts for 3-season adventures. We were especially looking for highly functional products which have a great warmth-to-weight ratio. If you think you might want to go for a sleeping bag instead, check out our review of the Best Lightweight 3-season Sleeping Bags. As quilts leave your back in direct contact with a sleeping pad, many use them together with sleeping bag liners which significantly increase the comfort for very little added weight (a sleeping bag liner can weigh as little as 100 grams). Check out our review of the Best Sleeping Bag Liners here.
Comforters are compressed during transport, this is not permanent. You can restore the natural loft with a vigorous shake and put it on your bed. It takes only a day for the fluffy loft to resume. Maintain the beautiful look of your comforter by shaking it out on a weekly basis to redistribute the down inside. Some comforters can go in the dryer on low or no heat to fluff. Add a couple tennis balls to help the fluff along. Any comforter made of sateen over 600 thread count cannot go into the dryer, but must be professionally cared for.

Goose down can be found from birds captured in the wild. Goose down is larger and fluffier than duck. Either one of these choices will provide the same kind of insulation. Another difference is goose down clusters typically is taken from older or larger geese and have fewer odor issues unlike found sometimes with duck. Feathers used for lower quality bedding are often cut up into small pieces as a fill.

Amish quilts, while beautiful and certainly works-of-art, are made with the intention that they will actually be used as bed coverings and baby quilts. With strong seams and colorfast fabrics they are made to be laundered. And so even with daily use and reasonable care they can easily become family heirlooms. Wall hanging size Amish quilts are made in the same way.

Alternative down comforters require more synthetic fill in order to equal the same kind of warmth a true down comforter provides. This makes them heavier. They also have to be replaced more often due to the fast breakdown of synthetic fibers. Some ideal synthetic fills are polyester, cotton, and wool. Plus you will find these types of comforters to be a budget-friendly option.

Fill Power: This is the goose down fill to be put in the comforter measured in cubic inches. The rule of thumb on fill is “The higher fill power, the higher the quality of comforter”. A high fill power is going to be more insulating and warmer but still remaining light and with loft. Our suggestion is to start at a fill power of at least 600 (commercial quality) with around 700+ being perfect loft, retaining body heat evenly. The higher the cubic inch measure of the fill power the higher the loft. 
Gusseting: This is a construction technique which is widely underused, but should be applied more often due to the extra security it provides in durability and resilience of the comforter. Think of it like a thick ribbing or edging against the side walls to secure a comforter's top and bottom layers together. This style provides maximum loft and can have either a baffle-box or sewn-through construction.

Here are nine quilts that we wouldn't dream of kicking out of bed.

Quilting is often thought of as communal activity such as a quilting bee where woman gather around a quilt frame to quilt a bed quilt. With Amish quilts today two, three or four people may work together to make a single quilt, but instead of quilting together each takes on a one or more of steps in the quilt making process. The first step in the process is to select the quilt's design and select and purchase the fabrics to be used in the quilt. Second step is to assemble the quilt top. Third step is to do the quilting and the fourth step is add the binding and ready the quilt for sale. It is not unusual for a different person to do each step. But the most common practice is for one person to do steps one, two and four and another person to the quilting. Occasionally a single person will do it all. The reason for the division of labor is that the work involved in each of the steps is quite different. The ability and artistic talent to select fabrics is not common --better for someone with this talent to apply it to the making of many quilts. Piecing a particular quilt top becomes easier and the workmanship better after quilter has made a half dozen tops of that design. So it is best to turn to a woman who is expert with a particular design to make the quilt top with that design. Quilting usually is not specialized to a particular design or style of quilt and is less cerebral -- in fact it may be a great distraction from the problems of the day. Applying the binding and readying the quilt for sale -- which means finding and removing spots, finding then adding missing lines of quilting, requires attention to detail. The coordination of the whole process is usually done by the person selecting the design and fabrics. This person selects Amish and Mennonite friends to work with on each quilt. Each person working on the quilt works on it in their own home. All work is done in America.
