Nothing seems quite as cozy and warm as a good old fashion quilt. Quilt bedding is a good value and brings back the nostalgic memories of staying the night at grandma’s house.
Fortunately it’s no longer necessary for us to sit at a quilting frame to create the beauty and warmth of a home style quilt. It’s possible to find that same coziness of grandmother’s home when you do your shopping for bedding quilts online.
Today, there are many retailers who offer quality quilts just like grandma used to make. Of course nothing replaces your grandmothers homemade quilt bedding, she put lots of love into every stitch. It’s possible though, to come very close to the look and feel of the quality.
You’ll find just about any style of quilt imaginable with just the click of a mouse. You can find quilts made from the highest quality materials that are made to withstand the test of time.
If you’re the adventurous type, and you’d like to try your hand at making quilts, you’ll first choose what size bed the quilt will be placed on. After determining the bed-size, decide on a color scheme.
If the color scheme is designed to match a particular room color, your best bet is to visit the fabric store for suitable fabrics. If the quilt is an anything-goes quilt, the fabric can be old clothing, bedding, curtains and even pajamas. Figure out the bed size you want, and then determine how many inches you would like the quilt to fall below the top of the mattress.
As a rule of thumb, I use the flat sheet of a twin bed for a quilt size that accommodates that size bed. The same for full, queen, and king. In fact, the flat sheet is an excellent backing for the quilt.
For a baby quilt, measure the crib mattress and add enough material to ensure the blanket is at least one foot wider than the mattress, in its finished state. Similarly, when making a baby quilt, your squares are smaller, usually around 3-4 inches, as opposed to the 6-8″ squares used on a larger quilt.
Making your own bed quilt can be a lot of fun, especially when it’s a family activity, but let’s face it, it takes a lot of work and time! So if you’re not really into all of that, then don’t worry, you’ll find an astounding variety of beautiful quilts for your bedroom online that are sure to please.
