    Beautiful! - 4/30/2015
    By: from Franklin NC

    I'm very pleased with the quality and size of the quilt. It's large enough on a double bed to cover the box springs so I don't need to use a bed skirt.

    Worth Waiting For - 3/14/2015
    By: from New Hampshire

    I have a queen size bed with a 20" mattress and wanted something that would fit and still show my dust ruffle. I ordered the King and it fit perfectly. The colors are beautiful and will blend with any decor. Very pleased with the quality workmanship.

    I bought this quilt for a queen sized bed but purchased a king quilt. I fold the extra length back then put the pillows on. I love this look! Hey Orvis ...wish there was a matching shower curtain for my adjoining bathroom.

    The quilts met all my expectations. They are well made and look the same as the photos, which doesn't always happen on websites. I will order from Orvis again if I need another quilt.

    Just Perfect - 1/24/2015
    By: from Sound Beach, NY

    Waited too long to place order for king sized quilt before the holidays, but decided to wait for the backorder. It came about a month earlier than expected and was well worth the wait! The quilt is just as, if not more beautiful than the picture and goes perfectly with our modern rustic decor. It's a classic that would blend well with many different styles. The fabric/colors are rich and the stitching appears high quality. I would consider this a medium weight, 3-4 season quilt, which is great - as I'd love to leave it on the bed year round.

    The colors in this quilt are so beautiful; it's also not too heavy like most quilts

The Tradition of the Quilt

Provence QuiltToday they hang as masterpieces of American art in prestigious museums such as the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. They are revered the world over for their composition, creativity, and color. But the quilt’s origins are neither American nor particularly prestigious.

The Origins of "Quilt"

A quilt, by definition, is simply two layers of cloth stitched together with a soft filling. Though mainly known today as bedcoverings, the word quilt is thought to come from the Latin culcita, meaning literally a "stuffed sack," or mattress.

The Early History of Quilts

Quilts may have made their way to Europe on the return trips of the Crusaders. But whatever their route, by the 17th century quilted clothing and quilted bedcovers had become popular in Europe and the tradition naturally immigrated to America. It was there that the tradition of quilting was raised to an art form with the quilting explosion of the mid 1800s. Perhaps no group of quilters epitomized the quilting revolution more than Amish.

The Amish and Quilting

Considering their separatist nature, it is not surprising that most Amish came to quilting later than other American women. But what we may find surprising is that this conservative group pioneered the use of vibrant, sometimes shocking color combinations. And it was the Amish, when quilting waned in the years following World War II, who helped keep the tradition alive.

Because they approach change gradually, Amish quilters have helped keep alive some of America’s most beloved and traditional patterns, including Sunshine and Shadow, Around the World, Diamond in the Square, and the multi-hued Roman Stripe.
