Although not all quilts follow a “patchwork quilt” design as we know it, this type of bedding – traditionally made from remnants of material – was developed around the 19th century by frugal and inventive midwestern, Amish, and Mennonite women. A patchwork quilt is a blanket used for bedding that is stitched together using three layers: the top design made from textile remnants, a layer of insulation (known as wadding or batting), and a layer of material for the backing. Since there are many different styles – including geometric, formal, imaginative, etc. – we’ll show our favorite Patchwork Quilt designs in this week’s Top Ten list.
In a Twin, Full/Queen, or King size, the Delaney Quilt Bedding by C&F Bedding is a calming cottage-inspired patchwork quilt design that uses textures and patterns with neutral shades and varied green colors with the option of matching pillows, bedskirt and sheets to its palette.
Known as a traditional, antique heirloom patchwork quilt design, the Woodland Quilt Bedding by Donna Sharp Bedding uses slight fraying around each patchwork diamond to add texture. The dozens of outlined small plaid squares make for a warm, mountain feel and fit well with a rustic, log cabin interior.
In Queen, King, and Luxury King sizes, the soft ambiance created by the bold maroon, gold, chocolate, and evergreen shades of the Welcome Quilt Bedding by Lasting Impressions Bedding is a modern version of the classic patchwork quilt design. Match the quilt comforter to the sheets, pillow shams, bedskirt, and window draperies to create a complete set.
In Full/Queen or King Mini sizes, the Raggedy Patch Pink Quilt Bedding by Pem America Bedding is a light pink and pastel-themed quilt that features various floral and paisley patterns. Made with textured fraying around the patchwork designs, the delicate look is a decorative and warm way to cover up.
The refreshing white background of the Martha’s Vineyard Blue Quilt Bedding features detailed quilt patterns and stripes sewn in blues, browns, and floral patterns for a graphic patchwork look. It comes in Twin Mini and Full/Queen Mini Quilt Sets that include 2 pillow shams and can be completed with a matching bedskirt.
Going for an heirloom look, this Spice Postage Stamp Quilt Bedding by Donna Sharp uses small square textiles in hearty colors and scalloped edges in cream, yellow, dark green, and dark red florals, paisley prints, and solid colors. It comes in Twin, Full/Queen, and King sizes with pillow shams, sheet sets, a throw, and bedskirt to match.
Since quilts aren’t all packed with color, we included the Laura Quilt Bedding by Taylors Linens Bedding into the mix for a pristine, all-white patchwork quilt option. Focused on delicate scalloped edges, cording, and other embellished features, the Laura is a sophisticated matelasse that can match a bedskirt, sheets, and shams of the same chic pattern.
Bright and cheery, the Floral Field Quilt Bedding by Roxy Bedding is a watermelon-tinted quilt with a relaxed feel. It’s dark gray trim and blue, green, white, and purple flower patterns stretch out on top of the solid, quilted base – matching the two pillow shams included in the quilt set as well as the addition of an optional matching bedskirt and sheet set.
Combining classic plaid squares with a contemporary oceanside feel, the red, light yellow, white, beige, navy, and sky blue bring a casual feel into the bedroom with this Chatham Quilt Bedding by Nautica Bedding. In Twin, Full/Queen and King sizes, the collection can be matched to pillow shams, sheets, and a bedskirt for the full ensemble.

Each patchwork quilt is sewn with blue, yellow and sage solids, as well as sea turtle, seahorse, star fish and other ocean creature appliqués for a varied effect.
