Best Quilts For Sale

If you live in a place with a real change in seasons, look for a midweight quilt that will be comfortable when it’s warm out, but that’s easy to layer in the colder months. Choose a quilt in a solid, neutral color to give yourself the most flexibility as you transition through the seasons: In summer, pair it with lightweight cotton or linen sheets, then in winter trade in flannel sheets and top it with an extra throw blanket or duvet if you need more warmth.
Down comforters are rated by fill power. The higher the number, the more air the down traps and the warmer it will be. So if you're looking for something extra-toasty, you'll want a fill power of 600 or higher. Make sure to also check the construction: A baffle-box design (that looks like the checkered patterns on quilts) has walls of fabric to help contain the down so it doesn't move from one section to another and cause lump or cold spots.
Like artisan-made quilts, the top of this one is also made in a piecework style and done in a mix of antique-inspired floral print. It’s made of 100% cotton, a hypo-allergenic and comfortable material for multiple seasons, and the quilt is oversize to work with taller mattresses and comes with two pillow shams. It comes prewashed and pre-shrunk and is reversible, too. Plus, more than 1,000 Amazon reviewers love this quilt.
This option from Pacific Coast is a lower priced style for the brand, but still maintains the key attributes of a quality down comforter. On the downside, it needs to be professionally laundered or dry cleaned. It has a 550 fill power in a 100% cotton fabric with a 230 thread count that has loops to attach to a duvet cover. It also features a diamond box design with a unique border that helps keep down evenly distributed throughout.

To facilitate hand quilting, colorfast quilting weight cotton fabrics (and occasionally light weight woolen fabrics) are used to cover the fronts and backs of Amish quilts. Fabrics are purchased off-the-shelf from fabric stores or distributors in small quantities usually no more than a bolt of a particular fabric at a time. Extra wide fabric is purchased to be used to cover the back of the quilt. It is traditional and not unusual to use somewhat rustic cotton muslin on quilt backs and, where appropriate, on the front of quilts. Both solid color fabrics and printed fabrics are used in Amish quilts.
Unless you live in the tropics, most of us need a little warmth at night! A well-made quilt is the perfect bed topper that can both keep you cozy and set the decor tone for your room, and it’s also an easy and inexpensive way to introduce an all-new color or pattern into your bedroom. Whether you live in a warmer climate where you just need light coverage or a colder one that requires some real layers, quilts come in a variety of styles, materials and weights to suit your needs. The beauty of a quilt is that it can work alone or with layers of other bedding, so it can easily transition through changes of season or simply from napping during the warm daytime and going to bed in the chilly night.
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.

Quilts are becoming increasingly popular among hikers, backpackers and mountaineers because they are lighter, less bulky and more adaptable than mummy sleeping bags. Unlike a sleeping bag, a quilt leaves your back in direct contact with the sleeping pad (the bottom of the quilt is open) and doesn’t have any zipper. However, it is typically big enough to be partially tucked under your body. The main argument for using a quilt instead of a sleeping bag is that the insulation on the underside of a sleeping bag gets smashed by your body weight and is thus just an excessive weight to carry (note that smashed insulation provides very little warmth). Typically quilts also feature a foot box for better insulation in the feet area and come with straps so that they can be attached to a sleeping pad. Please note that a quilt is always used together with a sleeping pad – unless you want to have your back on the bare ground.
While most down comforters are white, this Cuddledown style is available in 13 different colors. The cover is 100% cotton sateen with a 400 thread count and it's filled with a 600 fill power so it can be used all year long. The box-stitched construction and reinforced seams help keep the down evenly distributed inside. It's machine washable, but recommended in a commercial washer.
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!

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.

Features: The first detail we noticed was the 1200 thread count.

Add the 750+ fill power with the Egyptian cotton, and you are floating in luxury. Striped damask is lightly embellished over a well made batting.
