A quilt is not just a relaxing bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artisans who develop our quilts select high quality colorful materials and organize them in a creative work of art.

While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth as well as superb washing results.
You will find our quilts to be rather large in length and width. The majority of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's measurements varies as well. You'll find we list the quilt's measurements with the calculated drop for you to compare to the measurements you are looking for. It is important to do your homework before your purchase!
