Learn More About Quilts & Coverlets - FAQ
What’s the difference between a quilt, a coverlet, and a comforter?
A coverlet is one layer of woven fabric with no filling. A quilt has a thin layer of filling between two layers of fabric, all of which are stitched together with an embroidered pattern throughout. A comforter has a thicker layer of filling between two layers of fabric, making it fluffier than a quilt, and usually doesn’t feature embroidery. As a rule, a quilt is warmer than a coverlet, and a comforter is warmer than a quilt.
Are a quilt and duvet the same?
No. A duvet is much fluffier, with more filling, and isn’t stitched the same way. While some duvets are stitched to create pockets for less clumping, it isn’t as intricate or decorative as a quilt. Also, duvets need a duvet cover in order to be decorative, whereas a quilt is often decorative as is.
Can you wash a quilt?
Unless a manufacturer says otherwise, the preferred method for washing a quilt is by hand. This is because machine agitation can unravel the delicate stitching.
Can you wash a coverlet?
Unless a manufacturer says otherwise, most coverlets can be washed on a cool or warm gentle cycle. You can then tumble dry on low.
Which is best for winter, a quilt or a comforter?
It depends on your location. Comforters are warmer than quilts, as a rule.
