First, though, I had a reader request cotton percale duvet covers. I found them! Royal makes this duvet cover. Significantly more expensive are the ThomasLee PerfectCale duvet covers (see my comments on Thomas Lee elsewhere on this blog.)
OK, this is a neat bargain in my view - an all-cotton king quilt (including the fill - just the bonus pillows have polyester in them. It's also available in twin and full/queen sizes.
I mean, it's seriously old-fashioned and just gorgeous. At the time of this writing, one customer on Amazon.com even uploaded a picture of the quilt on a canopy bed, and it looks fantastic and makes me want to cozy up. I do wish I had the space and time to begin quilting, because my spouse always, ALWAYS robs me of my Domestications quilt.
I don't know if I've mentioned it a lot in this blog, but I'm starting to learn to sew clothing and have begun to design my own fabric, and it's this basic kind of quilt that I find almost inspiring enough to start quilting. (Actually, I did start hand-sewing random pieces of extra cotton scraps together, but that was something of a disaster. Maybe I'll upload pics one day if there's interest in some comic relief on this blog.)
This cotton quilt is fairly girly-girl, but not over the top, and is scalloped on the edge like the one I bought yea those many years ago. I'm not 100% confident the fill is cotton, though, as the description doesn't specify, though it does say explicitly a couple of times "100 percent cotton." So it SHOULD be filled with cotton batting if all's right in the universe.
For a more "boy's boy" quilt, here's a cute cowboy number with matching shams.
So that's what I have right now. I'll add to these when I can. If you have any suggestions, please do tell here!
