How To Choose The Best Quality Quilt? - The Ultimate Guide

The average person spends about one-third their life in bed. When sleep is an integral part of our lives, one must choose the right quilt. The first thing to look for in a quilt is comfort, as this is the whole point of using a quilt. 

There are various types of quilts, each with unique features. When looking for the best quality quilt, there are several things that need to be taken into consideration besides comfort, like quality, suitability for the purpose, durability and longevity, personality and style.       

What do you need?

This is the first question you have to ask yourself. In terms of the need, you may have to ask yourself some questions about what you expect from the quilt. Some of these are:

- What are the typical weather conditions in your location?
- What size of the quilt will you need?
- Are you or your partner allergic to any fabric or filling?
- Do you sleep with the AC or sweat even on winter nights?

Whatever the answer to the above questions, read on to find out how to figure out which one is the best quilt for you.


A quilt is essentially two pieces of fabric sewn together with a filling between them. The fabric you choose for your quilt will make all the difference, as this is what is constantly in contact with your skin. The fabric used on the quilt should be soft and breathable. The cotton we use at Blue Dahlia to make our quilts is the best for everyone, whether a toddler or an adult because it is safe and allergen-free.

The material should also be durable, easy to care for and maintain, clean and launderable. Fabrics vary widely in quality and price. If you're unsure what you want or need in your quilt, it's best to check with a customer service executive at your favourite store or get in touch with us at Blue Dahlia. 

Indian weather calls for breathable and light materials. When choosing a quilt, opting for one that can be used throughout the cold season is best. Some of our customers also like the feeling of warmth and comfort throughout the year. A cotton quilt will work well throughout the year- on cold winter nights and on those summer nights when you like to snuggle in an air-conditioned room with a comfortable quilt. 

The thread count plays an important role in the quality of the fabric, is the thread count. The thread count determines the thickness of the material. It also keeps the fabric light and comfortable for many years. 

Another factor is how well the fabric is sewn together--this can make all the difference between feeling like you're sleeping under a cloudless night sky versus being enveloped by an oppressive blanket of darkness! As in all things quilting-related: choose wisely!


A good quilt will last for years, as opposed to some made from cheap materials and will not hold up well over time. You want something comfortable enough that you don't have to get out of bed at night but also durable enough to withstand being tossed around in your suitcase or car seat without breaking down too much.

Choosing a high-quality quilt is a complicated process. There are many ways to choose a quilt, and each individual will have their preferences. For example, some people prefer thinner blankets, while others want something heavier and warmer.

Some brands offer better quality than others; however, not all brands of the same product type will have the same level of quality or customer service. The best way to find out what kind of quality you can expect from your new sheets is by talking with friends who have purchased them before or searching online for reviews about different types of companies that offer these products online. Or, for peace of mind, you can just order one from Blue Dahlia and be assured you are getting the best quality possible.

You can also check if there are any issues with durability by using a scale before purchasing one particular brand over another. This is because they may differ depending on each product's design specifications - materials used during the production process (such as cotton vs rayon); manufacturing methods such as sewing machine stitching versus hand sewing techniques, and so on.


The filling materials are probably the most important factor in choosing the best quality quilt. The quilt should be warm enough during the winter. A good quilt will keep you comfortable but not so warm that it's too hot to sleep under in summer. The factor that most determines how a quilt will control temperature is the material that is filled in the quilt.

Cotton is soft and breathable but not as insulating as wool or down. Feathers are light, fluffy and durable--perfect for sleeping under a warm blanket on cold nights. Microfibre is soft but lightweight enough to keep you cool in summertime climates. Quilts' prices largely depend on the filling they use, as some fillings are a lot more expensive than others. Let us look at some of these in more detail.

Cotton: Cotton is a natural fibre, and we use premium organic cotton at Blue Dahlia. Renowned for their comfort and breathability, cotton fibres are much cooler than synthetic or down quilts. They are considered a summer quilt, as they are well suited to use in the summer and can keep you warm enough in the winter months. For the climatic conditions in India, cotton quilts are ideal. Cotton quilts come in varying GSM fills and are hypoallergenic. They are also known to absorb moisture quite well.

Wool: Wool is considered one of the best materials for filling because it's warm, breathable and naturally flame-retardant. It also offers many other benefits, such as being hypoallergenic and soft. Wool regulates body temperature and humidity. Wool can be used in several ways: as insulation against cold temperatures, as padding under your body, or even thrown on top of you during outdoor activities like camping or hiking!

Down: Down clusters grow under the outer feathers of ducks and geese. They are natural insulators as they trap air, and filling these in a quilt makes it trap tiny pockets of air within their filaments and reflect your body heat. Down quilts are probably the most expensive of the lot. Down has many advantages: warmth, softness, breathability, durability, longevity, weight & packability.

Synthetic fibre: While the other three are natural options, also available are synthetic or man-made fibres like microfibre quilts or down alternatives. These quilts are making their way into the market in a big way. These synthetic fibres are great for first-time buyers and people who think their quilt will require frequent washing. These also tend to be more affordable than their counterparts with natural filling.


Generally, the quilt size should be larger than the need, as you want the quilt to be large enough to wrap around your body at any given time. For example, you might consider buying a queen-sized quilt for a single bed and a king-size one if you use a queen bed. This also helps drape the quilt and fold them down when making your bed. Also, they are great for cosying up on your couch when watching movies, and the bigger they are, the better they will keep you snug and cover your feet.


The quilt's design can be simple or complex, geometric or organic, symmetrical or asymmetrical. It can be abstract or representational and many other things in between.

The best designs have a balance between structure and freedom that makes them feel relaxed but still have a purpose. You want to look at your quilt as an art object rather than just another piece of decor for your home--so don't worry about getting caught up in details like "is this black enough?". Instead, focus on how it feels when you sit down on the couch with it draped over your legs!

If you are looking for a quilt that will last and be something you can enjoy, it should be attractive. This means choosing the right material and colour combination. The best way to do this is by thinking about how you want your new bedding to look in the room. Is it going to be a statement piece? Do you want something subtle or bold?

When choosing the aesthetic quality of your quilt, consider its size and shape as well as what type of patterns it uses (if any). What does this say about who you are? Who else might see this piece in their home? Is there anything special about how much fabric goes into one square foot versus another? How do all these factors affect each other when deciding which quilts might work best for different rooms at different times throughout life cycles--like growing up with pets or having children over time.


Your choice of the colour palette should reflect your personality and lifestyle. Choosing the right colour palette is very simple. The first step in choosing a colour palette is considering what colours reflect your personality. Do you have a bold sense of style, or are you more reserved with decorating? Are you into earth tones, or would you prefer something brighter? Once you have determined what colours appeal to you, it's time to think about how they could work within your home decor.

This can be as simple as adding bright accents around the room or adding some warmth by using reds and blues on walls throughout instead of just one area; however, keep in mind that if there isn't enough contrast between shades when placed together in one space then everything will look washed out--so choose wisely.

You could also choose prints in different colours to complement the earthy tones of your walls. Abstract or geometric prints can add an element of playfulness to your room. 


The price of a quilt can vary greatly, depending on the fabric and workmanship used to make it. The best quilts are made from natural materials like wool, cotton and silk. These fabrics tend to cost more than synthetics because they are much softer and more durable. If you're looking for something less expensive than wool or silk but still want high-quality craftsmanship, look for cotton blends that use both polyester and cotton threads in their weave.

The amount of time it takes someone with experience to sew up one size queen-sized bedspread will depend on how much experience they have and how many other things they have going on at any given time. A good quality quilt will last longer and save you money in the long run.

Quilting details, stitching and finishing

The quilt should be quilted or stitched together. Most quilts are made using a machine and an even number of stitches across the entire length of the fabric. The finishing on your quilt is just as important as its construction; it should be done consistently throughout each layer so that nothing shows through when put into use later down the line. The best way to ensure this is to choose a well-known brand such as Blue Dahlia. 


Overall, the best quality quilt will last, and you can be proud of it. You’ll want to find a quilt that feels comfortable and looks amazing in your home. We hope this post has helped you to get a better idea of what makes a good quilt.
