    Great quilt - 11/8/2012

    Best I could find on the internet in the UK. I was pleased the order was filled so promptly,coming from the USA. The fabric has intricate stitching, although the connective stitching could have been finer. The forest quilt is perfect where it lives at my home. Even my husband is pleased!

    The verdict is still out? - 10/27/2012

    There were lots of threads that I had to pick off and when doing so I saw a small section that had not been sewn down. It was easier to hand, slip stitch the section than package it up and mail it back. I thought the quilt was a bit pricey for what I received. After all, it's not a hand sewn quilt.

    The Forest quilt and shams arrived quickly and look beautiful. Colors and thickness as anticipated - it will warm the room I use it in.

    I have purchased a couple of quilts from Orvis. While I like the colors and design on this quilt, I must say that the material and weight are not as good as the others and the price was almost double. I will keep it because I do like the look but I am very disappointed in the quality.

    The stitching on this quilt makes it look as if it is handmade. It's a beautiful quilt. (Unfortunately the colors don't work with my wallpaper as well as I had hoped so I will probably return it.)

    I have never ordered anything from Orvis, a friend recommended you. I was a little nervous to make such a pricey purchase but we absolutely love it! Nice weight and good quality. I'm glad we tried you!! Great summer cover.

    Husband pleaser - 2/11/2012
    By: from South Texas

    Finally, a quilt that has eye appeal to both husband and wife. The rich earthy tones make it perfect for the 6 chillier months of the year. Not too bulky, therefore it's a snap to fold back and place on the quilt rack. This Quilt laundered superbly in our large capacity GE Profile Washer and the quilt did NOT spend extra time in the dryer, so shrinkage was undetected......

    Quality of this quilt and the shams is fantastic. I have been looking for the right style and color for about two years and I have finally found what I was looking for in your catalog. Thank you Orvis, my bedroom remodel is finally complete.

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.
