Nothing breathes new life into a bedroom as quickly as a new queen quilt, coverlet or bedspread. They’re also easy to care for -- most quilts are wrinkle-resistant and machine washable. Here’s how to choose the perfect quilt for your master bedroom or guest bed. Choosing a Queen Quilt
Consider your personal style and room decor when selecting a queen coverlet.
stitched pattern adds texture and character to your room. Geometric patterns such as subway tile, channel or octagonal pair well with modern decor. More elaborate patterns provide an exotic, global appeal. With its different fabrics and colors, a queen-size patchwork quilt offers a farmhouse-style vibe that’s easy to mix and match with sheets and throw pillows.
Reversible quilt coverlets give you the flexibility to easily change your room’s design. Queen-size quilt bedding sets take the guesswork out of choosing pillow shams and throw pillows, and make nice housewarming or graduation gifts. Colors.
Choose a color for your queen bedspread that already exists in your room, whether it’s a color in a throw pillow, artwork, rug or curtain. For a versatile bedspread that fits with any color decor, select a neutral quilt in gray, black, brown or cream. Striking colors like charcoal or ruby red add depth to a room, whereas lighter tones like lavender and white quilts
bring an airiness to a space. Materials.
Cotton queen quilts (where cotton is used for both the cover and filling) are lightweight and breathable. For a warmer material that won’t shrink in the wash, choose polyester. Stone-washed linen and microfiber are extra soft, while denim is durable enough to handle rambunctious kids and pets. Velour, velvet and sateen have a luxurious look and feel.
Personalizing a Queen Quilt
Embroidered accents in a paisley, floral or mosaic design can add colorful character to a solid tone quilt. Add your own stitching using a pattern or iron-ons. For a hint of country charm, add different style buttons along the edges or where stitches cross.
