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.
Once your child is old enough to have bedding in his crib, look for a lightweight quilt that can work in the crib and toddler bed by itself or as a layering piece. Choose a super-soft version made of 100% cotton and a lower-loft fill to keep your child warm without getting too hot. A lightweight version can also fit into your home washing machine to clean it when your child has an accident or an illness. Choose one in bright white that can be bleached if need be (because you know with kids, some kind of stain is inevitable!). The bonus with all-white: It will continue to match your child’s room decor and other bedding as their tastes change from one character or hobby to another. If you don’t like all-white, this one also comes in gray, blue and pink, or just with blue or pink borders.
The fill power in a comforter refers to its down-feather density — the number indicates the amount of space that 1 ounce of down fill takes up in cubic inches. Comforters with low power-fill numbers will be less lofty but more breathable, and those with higher numbers will be weightier and warmer. Most folks who sleep in temperature-controlled bedrooms will want to choose down comforters with a fill power in the 550-700 range, as these are just right for year-round comfort, but those with specific sleep needs may want to consider comforters outside of that middle range. Read on for our favorite down comforter picks across all categories.
