What are Quilts?
Quilts have been used since antiquity as insulation or padding. The word "quilt" is derived from the Latin "cotoneum," meaning woolen cloth. Today, people make quilts for all sorts of reasons - they might use them on their beds, give them away as gifts, or even sell them at craft fairs or online stores. Quilters often use scraps of fabric leftover from previous projects when making quilts, or they might buy new fabric with which to make quilts. Quilts are usually made for warmth - quilt insulation comes from the structure of quilt batting (thick padding) and quilt stitching (woven layers).
How Are Quilts Different From Comforters or Duvets?
A quilt is a quilted or quilted blanket with two layers of fabric, the quilt top and the quilt back. The quilts come in different shapes and sizes - some are made for adults while others are made for children. Quilts are typically placed on the mattress, whereas comforters or duvets are placed under the quilts - usually to prevent them from getting dirty. In addition, quilts typically have batting, which is insulation.
Quilts might also be known as quilted blankets - quilts are quilted blankets that usually have a single quilt-top and back piece, with the edges bound together by quilt stitching (woven layers). Quilts can come in all shapes and sizes, so it's not rare to find quilts for king-size beds, queen-size beds, and quilts for full-size beds.
Why Should You Buy Quilts for Beds?
If you are looking for extra warmth on a cold winter night, then adding quilts to your bed ensemble is not a bad idea. A quilt is also ideal if you are uncomfortable with the weight of a duvet or comforter.
Lastly, quilts have a variety of designs and sizes that you can easily mix and match. This allows you to let your creativity run wild when planning out how your bedroom will look like. The varying size also will enable you to have quilts for each bed in your home. For example, if you have a king-size bed, you can get a king-size quilt.
How to Take Care of Quilts for Beds
Maintaining quilts and quilted blankets is not hard - quilts and quilted blankets come with their cleaning instructions. Here are some tips for how to take care of quilts:
Keep quilts in a room that is not frequently used or exposed to sunlight, making them yellow or making the colors fade.
Quilts should ideally be washed once every six months, though more often if they are used regularly.
Use cold water when washing quilts.
Dry the quilt top and back pieces separately, then sew them together before use. This may sound like too much effort, but it will ensure that your quilt will last long.
For machine drying quilt tops and backs, set the dryer at low heat with no agitation for quilt tops and medium heat with no agitation for quilt backs.
Quilts can be put in dryers to keep them warm after they are washed - quilts should not take more than 10 minutes to dry.
Using dryer sheets on quilts is not recommended.
Dryer sheets may leave behind an oily residue that will make quilts smell bad over time. Using dryer sheets also reduces quilt life. If you want your quilts to smell nice, hang them outside or use natural lavender-scented sachets instead of using dryer sheets. You can also line-dry quilted blankets outdoors if you'd like them to smell fresh.
