Beautiful Summer Quilts

May is just around the corner, with summer close behind. As the weather gets warmer, that thick, plush comforter that kept you cozy all winter is likely to be too heavy for the warm summer nights to come. Now is the perfect time to give your bed a "spring make over" with an attractive, lightweight summer quilt.

You might already have a quilt under your comforter for extra warmth, if you live in a cold climate. Quilts are great for spring and summer, they are usually lighter than a comforter and you get a new and different look for your bedroom. Here are some examples of great looking quilts for the warm season.


Summer Porch is a classic country quilt in 100% cotton face and fill. The timeless design brings back memories of those soft old quilts your grandmother had that just made you feel at home. This quilt is also pre-washed for added comfort. Pre-washing helps to set colors and take the initial stiffness out of the fabrics. The result is a quilt that feels and looks great right out of the package. Summer Porch has a signature design with the face of the quilt displaying a hand pieced lattice of printed ginghams and florals. These are different printed fabrics cut and quilted together and not a printed pattern that is just overstitched. The reverse of the quilt is a solid white cloth to match the borders on the face cloth. The pillow shams feature the same lattice work as the face of the quilt and use the sage green print as the tailored flange. The edges of Summer Porch feature a diamond design with diamond patchwork edges from fabrics in the face of the cloth. The frame of the quilt is a machine stitched white for touch of clean and natural elegance. Summer porch is pre-washed to give you t he heirloom feeling the first time you sleep under it. Available in queen and king with two shams included.

Our French Tiles collection is a perfect summer weight coordinate for any room. French Tiles quilts and pillow shams are a dyed all cotton material. The face of the quilt is machine-stitched in a highly detailed framed scroll pattern that can coordinate with formal and casual spaces. French Tiles items also feature 100% cotton filling for an all-natural, antique feel that is comfortable even in the summer heat. The quilt and shams have elegantly scalloped edges. The blue quilt is shown here, other color options include red, pale yellow and sage. Available in queen and king. Shams sold seperately.

Garden Road QuiltGarden Road is a classic country quilt with amazing hand crafted details. The face and back of the quilt are made form 100% cotton fabrics. The face cloths are delicately hand quilted into the patch work pattern and also feature embroidered highlights. The edges of the quilt are scalloped with a printed cording. Filled with 100% cotton and pre-washed for that added softness, this quilt, rich in color and details, is a perfect match for that sunny and bright bedroom. Available in queen and king, with matching shams included.

Raggedy Patch Quilt
Raggedy Patch is a lattice style patchwork of pastel floral and paisley prints. The face of the quilt is highlighted by rag style hems for added surface interest.

The edges of the quilt and shams are corded with a coordinating print. Each set comes with matching pillows shams in the same construction. Available in queen and king.


Our Isabelle Paisley quilt is a patchwork of floral prints in a tiled design with "rag style" frames for added surface texture.
