A quilt is not just a cozy bedspread: it is also a piece of art. The artists who make our quilts select high quality vivid fabrics and arrange them in a captivating masterpiece. Select from our stock of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your home design.
Though the pieces of fabric are sewn with each other by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and exceptional washing outcomes.
You will discover our quilts to be really generous in length and width. As a matter of fact, the majority of our quilts are large enough to eliminate the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's dimensions is different as well. You'll find we specify the quilt's dimensions along with the estimated drop for you to compare to the measurements you need. It is important to do your measuring before buying!
