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.
Patchwork piecing of Amish quilts is usually done with a sewing machine. Connecting patchwork pieces together this way makes the quilt very strong. What's more, this stitching can not be seen once the quilt is completed. Amish women have used non-electric sewing machines since they first became available over 150 years ago. On the other hand, applique work is all done by hand, as is most embroidery and binding.

I love this Royal Down comforter. It replaced a 10 year old Scandia down one that was wonderful. This Royal Hotel comforter exceeds my expectations. It is light weight, comfortably warm and looks fabulous on my bed. I have always put my down comforters in a duvet because I think it protects the comforter and keeps it clean. It also avoids any possible problems with small pin holes made by sitting on it or having animals jump on it.
Whether you live someplace warm or like to throw the windows open come summertime, a lightweight quilt is a must to be comfortable in the nighttime chill or with the air conditioning going. But you’ll want to stay away from heavier materials like wool fill or densely woven outer layers so you don’t get too hot. This quilt is made of 100% cotton in both the fill and outer layers, so it provides a little bit of warmth but still breathes, and won’t hold on to humidity. It’s made by artisans in India (a country that gets very, very hot) using a traditional weaving method called “kantha” and takes six days to make. It’s super-soft and can be used alone on the bed for hotter days, or layered under or over a duvet when it’s really chilly.

The Therm-a-Rest Corus HD quilt is another great choice for 3-season hiking. The quilt uses 650-fill power down which is treated with Nikwax so that it repels the water (hydrophobic down) rather than absorbing it. Therefore, it offers better warmth when exposed to moisture than regular down. The shell is made of 20-denier DWR treated nylon for good abrasion resistance and weather protection. The quilt has also an elastic footbox so that it keeps your feet warm at low temperatures. As it features snap loops it can easily be attached to a sleeping pad. It comes in two different sizes – regular (193 cm in length) and long (203 cm in length).
Quilts require less fabric and insulation than sleeping bags and are thus in average 30% lighter and smaller (when packed) even while using the same materials. As they don’t fit snugly around your body, they also allow you to wear clothes during the night for extra warmth. However, quilts also have disadvantages in comparison to sleeping bags. They have to be used with a sleeping pad and they don’t prevent air drafts as good as sleeping bags, since the warm air escapes to the outside when you wiggle around. Therefore, they are not recommended for very cold weather, but most quilts do offer sufficient warmth for 3-season hiking.
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.
While you choose the perfect down comforter, it is wise to pick up a decorative and functional duvet cover. It is a coordinating bed cover which is removable and easily washed. This will lengthen the lifetime of your down comforter by protecting it from mishaps like moisture. Duvet covers are spectacular for instantly changing the color scheme of your bedroom.

I bought Cozy Feather's King sized goose down comforter for my new room re vamp initially because not only did it describe very well what I wanted but also the price seemed extremely reasonable. I like being warm and was definitely looking for a some thing that could make me warm without using layers of blankets like I usually do. The item arrived well packaged and on time. It was in an amazon box and a regular comforter packaging

Filled with humanely sourced duck down, the 600-fill-power Casper Down Duvet is every bit as strategically engineered as its famed mattress. A departure from traditional baffle-box quilting, its sewn-through seams create slim, rectangular chambers that hold the down and retain its fluffiness. As a bonus, it even has corner loops to hold a duvet cover in place.
