I Love A Quilted Blanket.
I adore these quilted blankets. I have one I bought in pink and green and cream that we use on our bed in Spring and summer. It looks very fresh and uplifting whilst still being warm.
We have a very special one that was a gift from a dear friend. We use that on our bed in the autumn and winter and also use it around the house over the sofa as a throw and it is lovely and cosy :)

Sea Inspired Quilted Throw

Soft blues other pale background colours make this a very pretty blanket. If you like the seaside look this is ideal as it has a seashell theme with seahorses and starfish along with the lovely shells. Striped on the reverse so the seaside theme continues.

Making Quilts-History and Technique

Quilts were often made to celebrate and event in a persons life. Women would gather together and make the quilt together so it could be a very social and community event. Typical reasons to make a quilt were a wedding or a birth.
Today we still of course celebrate these events and a quilt is a lovely gift to choose and we also love them for other gifts such a Birthdays and Christmas time.

There is something intrinsically comforting and warming and very welcoming about a quilt that I always find very lovely when I see one in a home.
 
You can learn more about the very interesting history and techniques of quilt making and how it lives on by watching the informative and very watchable -with showing some gorgeous historical and art work designs - video below.

A Brief History of Quiltmaking

Certainly a rich antique look and feel to this throw that will make a subtle statement in your home at an affordable price.
It would look very good draped over a chair or sofa in a living area I think.

It is finely stitched with a vintage rose bound edge and back and over stitched for durability. Easy care in 100% cotton and just requires a machine wash.

Thank You For Your Visit

Somehow a quilted blanket seems to incorporate both being very up to date and chic with reminding us of crafts and community and a sense of nostalgia.A quilted blanket can easily become a family heirloom to be treasured for ages.

For me a quilted blanket in a room makes the house look and feel warmer and more homey. Just gorgeous as a gift for a loved one that will be remembered for ever, or as a wonderful   treasured addition to your own home.

LOVE quilts and quilted throws. I'm planning to get a new one for the master bedroom when we move into our new home, and I have several quilted throws and blankets, too. I love the country look.
