A Few Beautiful Quilts

I love quilts.

My idea of heaven is a pile of quilts on my bed. Aside from the gorgeous designs, I love the weight of them. Quilts aren’t just decorations for one’s bed; they’re layering pieces. Marlboro Man and I have two or three quilts on our bed any any given time, so we can peel back or pull up whatever we need to keep us from sweltering or freezing, depending on the weather and my hormones.

For three or four years, when my girls were little, my mother-in-law and I decided to give each other a new quilt for Christmas each year. I cherish those quilts.

In honor of quilts, I’ve written a song. Here it is:

Quilts are natural
Quilts are good
Not everybody does it
But everybody should.

Here are a few I’ve seen recently.

 
Red Floral Kantha Quilt at Sundance Catalog. Sundance quilts = gorgeous.

 
 
Sunburst Quilt at Pottery Barn. I love this pattern…and I love the colors.

 
 
Donna Karan Essentials Puckered Stitch Quilt at Bloomingdales. This is subtle and neutral, but we have one of these at The Lodge and it’s scrumptious and soft.

 
 
Riona Quilt by Pine Cone Hill. This pretty closely resembles one my mother-in-law gave me years ago. Love the faded brown shade!

 
 
Eileen Fisher Hand-Embroidered Quilt at Garnet Hill. Another monochromatic/neutral one. But I love it. With crisp white sheets, this would be beautiful.

 
 
Bloomfield Quilt at Sundance (again!)

(In closing, I would like to say that I’d appreciate it if Sundance Catalog would go away. Their quilts are way too gorgeous.)

My mom has a (more traditional) quilt that my great grandmother made. She’s had it for years and we’d sleep in it, watch movies under it, take it outside and sunbathe on it…the works. And it always looked fine; it just got softer and softer. It made the scene in How to Make an American Quilt—the one where Winona Ryder drags her new wedding quilt through the dirt to go find her love, Dermot Mulroney—slightly more forgivable.

But only slightly!

    Ooh, I love the first two, they would look lovely in my guest room. Too bed we have down comforters with duvets, so no use for a quilt. (Down comforters are SOOO comfy though, I’d never be willing to change them!)

    I’m a novice. At everything. But, I made two baby quilts last year, with my $70 Walmart special sewing machine. My quilts taught me that I have a lot to learn, and that no matter how much asking price, the cost of a quilt cannot compensate for the sweat and tears that go into each one. That’s why they are so special. It is such a tactile, beautiful, timeless craft.

    Love love love the puckered one. My mom sucked me into quilting years ago. Sometimes it’s theraputic, sometimes it makes me feel insane; there’s something to be said for the hours of work and creative thought behind the desings. Plus, I can have a pile of quilts on my bed anytime I want.

    Oh how I love quilts too!! Secretly I wish I had the time and patience to make them myself. My favorite is the sunburst quilt. The colors are stunning!

    True, these are pretty but if you look at the product description, they all say “imported”. Which means they were probably made somewhere in Asia in a sweatshop. If I am wrong, then I am sorry. A true quilt is handmade and passed from generation to generation.

    I’m with Valerie, I love love love the look and feel of quilts, but I have a down comforter/duvet combo that I just could not part with. My boyfriend calls it the blanket of death, and we have to sleep with separate blankets because of it. If I won’t give it up for him, I’m not giving it up ever!

    Best boot ever!!! I love my Sundance II's! I ordered them from Zappos years ago and every cold snap since they are all I wear! They are a little big because I ordered my normal 8 but loved them so much I didn’t want to send them back for a smaller size. I have bought replacement insoles and they work great! My boots still look like new after many years of wear, even in the woods! Love, love, love!

    Love These Boots - I love Uggs and these boots are my favorite. I cannot tell you how many compliments I have gotten on them. I look so cute in them with my matching Uggs purse. Zappos gets them to me so fast and a return is never a problem. I keep coming back to Zappos. Great shoe store and great boot. Be sure to order them one size smaller than you normally wear. Uggs run big. I wear a 7 but in Uggs I have to buy a 6.

    Terrific boots! I LOVE these boots! I have them in several colors. The extra stitching around the front of the boot (toe area) make the difference and make these truly beautiful and structured- they give the boot almost a "pointed toe" look- not the wide, "Minnie Mouse" look the regular Uggs have (at least that's the way the other style looked on me). THESE are magnificent! I get so many compliments whenever I wear them. I need and put in an arch support insole under the removable, soft, Ugg insole. It really helps, in terms of support. I LIVE in these boots all winter! Comfortable, WARM, and beautiful!

    Brands I'd also recommend: Ugg Ultra- same wonderful, added stitching at the toe area.

    Uggs are the best - These are the most fantastic boots I have ever owned. I love them so much, I have 3, okay 4 pairs. I would recommend going down to a smaller size if you are in between. I have an 8 and 3 in size 7. The 8 feels a bit "floppy" once they were broken in. Wish I could own a pair in every color. And at Zappos, you know they are authentic!

    Brands I'd also recommend: I love Skechers dress & tennis shoes.

    I Am A Faithful Ugg's Customer - I am a faithful Ugg's wearer and prefer the classic Ugg, having 3 pairs. I bought the SundanceII for my daughter as a birthday gift. I wanted her to enjoy the comfort of Uggs for herself. I thought she would really like the fur trim of The Sundance II, which she did. The overall look is cool. The comfort for me (I tried them on) is not as good as the Classic Ugg since the Sundance II has more structure. But they are comfortable and have a removable innersole.Wearing Uggs, with no socks, as recommended is the ultimate comfort in summer or winter. I have learned that with most Ugg boots to buy a size smaller than what I normally wear, except for The Ugg Sunset Boot which runs true to size. My daughter loves her boots and now wants another pair in Black. Oh, and I also have an Ugg handbag, which is fabulous and I get so many compliments on it.

    Brands I'd also recommend: Uggs Classic, Uggs Sunset

    Most comfortable shoes EVER! Once you put these boots on, you'll never want to take them off! I usually wear a 7.5 - 8, so I bought a 7 and a 6 (with plans to return one pair). I found that the quality of the two pairs differed dramatically -- the smaller pair was lighter in color and the fur was much less plush. So I kept the size 7. This pair is slightly loose (fits great with socks) but it was much higher in quality than the 6. Of course Zappos made the return of the unwanted pair very simple. Thanks Zappos!

    If your feet are narrow, definitely order down! Hi, I would like to contribute my 10 cents here. First of all, I have only nice things to say about Zappos. They are so speedy and hassle free and they shipped my boots in a perfect condition while in stores you always ended getting a pair been tried by many and stretched out. Second, if you are trying to decide between the Sundance II and Sunburst tall which are very similar, definitely get the Sundance II, it is way softer, with thicker fur and made in New Zealand. Thirdly, if you have narrow feet like mine, definitely order down a full size. I am a 7 1/2 to 8 1/2, my feet is narrow and long. I tried the size 7, it fits me perfectly without socks, but I decided to go with size 8 just because I feel sometimes I may need to wear socks and I like to wear my shoes big. Man, I made a mistake, just after one day of wear; the boots are falling out of my feet. As they are so soft, they stretch so quickly. Now I feel I am wearing sleepers around, but I still love them, only wish I have ordered a size down. Good luck.

    I love these boots! Received these boots for Christmas '04, but didn’t realize that I haven’t left review for them, 'til I was reviewing a new pair received Christmas '05. I absolutely love these Ugg boots. The fleece is full. Mine were made in New Zealand. Excellent quality!! Did I already say I love them? It was a snug fit at first, but after the fleece started conforming to my feet... they now feel, at least, a half size bigger. I recommend getting the stain/water repellent, as I have had these for a year already, worn them thru rain & a bit of snow/sleet & they still look brand new! Zappos, once again, was great!! Fast free shipping, received boots & repellent w/in 2 days of ordering & I even got a discount for the Ugg box corner being pushed in. Zappos is the best online

    Ugg Sundance II- Not sure if I'm reviewing the shoes or the service. Either way they both get 5 Stars. Although the Uggs were for my 18-year-old daughter, I did try them on and they felt great! So comfortable & warm. I will definitely be back to the Zappos website to order more shoes. The service was excellent & shipping at the busiest time of year was above average. Thank You Zappos.com.

    I cannot say enough about this boot! Comfortable, warm, and oh so cozy... Last year I had to purchase them in the sand color and wore them without socks... this color is much better for everyday wear and this time I am wearing socks. I highly recommend these boots. Also, they are made in New Zealand, a plus. I ordered them in a size smaller as people were suggesting. Upon the first two wearings the back of my feet scraped along the back of the boots and it hurt. But as soon as they stretched out all was well. Thanks Zappos!!

    So Comfy- I love UGGs, but these are the best looking ones that I have ever bought. I like the rubber sole better then the ones I have had in the past because it’s thicker. I love how the fur folds over the top and they look amazing with jeans. If you live in a cold snowy area these are definitely the boots for you.

    Great boots! Although the color is not like the picture, I'm still happy with them. I expected a deep chestnut color. They are not. I'm glad I took the advice of other buyers. I am a size 9 and this boot fits perfect in size 8. Now I am going o order the pocketbook. Only thing is I hope it matches the chestnut color!

    The best boot I ever bought - I live in Upper Michigan and it get veeerrrrry cold here. These boots are the warmest and they are lined all the way through not just the tops of them. They are worth every penny I spent.
