Summer-Weight Quilt

Our lightweight summer quilt is as comfortable as it is attractive.

Details

We removed just enough batting from this quilt to make it the perfect weight for summer. Pieced in a subtle patchwork of triangles, it offers a refreshing take on a traditional quilt design. Allover popcorn stitching adds a textural look and feel. Finished with blue floral border and solid ivory back. Shams sold separately. Lightweight summer quilt in pale blue. Pure cotton. Washable.

    Almost like Nana's ! - 6/16/2014
    By: from Big Island of Hawai'i

    Was pleasantly delighted when I received this quilt. Unlike many modern quilts which are basically one piece of fabric with stitches sewn on, this one's almost like the one's Nana made. There are small squares and triangles sewn together in a flying geese pattern and then it's quilted together. Color is like the photo. Love my summer quilt.

    Finally - a summer quilt - 6/10/2014
    By: from Elverson, PA

    This is a beautiful, well-made quilt. I have been looking for a true summer-weight quilt for years and finally found one. The only disappointment was that the shams were back-ordered, but they are well worth the wait.

    By: from IL

    This quilt has the beautiful soft colors of summer, with a lightweight softness. It's a lovely change from the quilt I use in the winter. This one makes the whole room feel light and breezy. It changes the feel of the room completely!

    Beautiful quilt! - 4/30/2014
    By: from Midwest

    Absolutely beautiful quilt. The colors are tranquil, and I did not notice any unpleasant smell upon opening the packaging. It also seems well-constructed.

    Love this quilt! - 11/6/2013
    By: from Southern US

    I love this quilt and bought two of them for one of my bedrooms! The quilt is even prettier when you see it on a bed, rather then in a picture. I would not actually refer to it as, "summer weight," but still, I absolutely love it! I have a number of handmade quilts, yet this one is probably my favoite!

    Wonderful Quilt - 8/24/2013
    By: from Gettysburg, PA

    My only regret is they no longer have it in the other colors. I bought it in yellow several years ago and it is my favorite quilt (I have 20 or so). The colors are so soft and it's the perfect summer/fall weight.

    not the color in catalog - 6/26/2013
    By: from Plover, Wisconsin

    Loved the quilt in the catalog and ordered it because of the color. At first I thought they had shipped the wrong quilt but no, it is really more blue than green and has lots of yellow in it. It still went well with my room and is the perfect weight for summer.

    Summer colors - 6/24/2013
    By: from Lakeside Missouri

    The weight of the quilt was fine. The stitching way below par, puckered. It would have been nice to have a bed skirt available to go with it, an easy on style since king sized mattresses are impossible to lift! It is a good enough quilt for the lake.

    Great purchase - 5/1/2013
    By: from Reading, PA

    Love the summer-weight quilt! It's colors are muted & looks more sophisticated than "country", which is exactly what I wanted. The quilt washed well and has a great feel. Some reviewers mentioned the size. Well it is a quilt, not a bedspread, so it comes a short distance down the sides of the bed. This is what I wanted, but if you are looking for something to come halfway or more down the sides, you will be disappointed.

The Tradition of the Quilt

Provence QuiltToday they hang as masterpieces of art in prestigious museums such as the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Quilts are revered the world over for their composition, creativity, and color.

The Origins of "Quilt"

A quilt, by definition, is simply two layers of cloth stitched together with a soft filling. Though mainly known today as bedcoverings, the word quilt is thought to come from the Latin culcita, meaning literally a "stuffed sack," or mattress.

The Early History of Quilts

Quilts may have made their way to Europe on the return trips of the Crusaders. But whatever their route, by the 17th century quilted clothing and quilted bedcovers had become popular in Europe and the tradition naturally immigrated to America. It was there that the tradition of quilting was raised to an art form with the quilting explosion of the mid 1800s. Perhaps no group of quilters epitomized the quilting revolution more than Amish.

The Amish and Quilting

Considering their separatist nature, it is not surprising that most Amish came to quilting later than other American women. But what we may find surprising is that this conservative group pioneered the use of vibrant, sometimes shocking color combinations. And it was the Amish, when quilting waned in the years following World War II, who helped keep the tradition alive. Quilting fit quite naturally into the Amish lifestyle—self sufficient, family-oriented, and skillful handwork. It was an occasion for Amish women to gather together, work as a community, and pass on their traditions.

The style of their quilts naturally followed the style of their clothing, combining somber and drab colors with more vivid ones. This juxtaposition of colors, especially when played out in simple geometric designs, created quilts of amazing energy.

Because they approach change gradually, Amish quilters have helped keep alive some of America’s most beloved and traditional patterns, including Sunshine and Shadow, Around the World, Diamond in the Square, and the multi-hued Roman Stripe.
