Once upon a time, the word “quilt” conjured up a homey item of bedding that only a mother could love — a miscellaneous grid of clashing cotton squares hand-sewn by someone’s grandma. While there is certainly a time and a place for such homespun vibes — especially in the DIY-heavy, cottagecore world of TikTok — there are also new and original options for the decorator that wants something a little more subdued, and we’ve spotted trend-forward designers and big-box retailers alike seeding elevated and modernized takes on the classic stitched bedspread.
Whether you’re looking for the aformentioned made-with love version that’s common on Etsy or a modern-art-museum-quality coverlet (à la indie linens imprint Cold Picnic), there’s no time like the present to invest in something that makes your bed not only comfortable but fashionable in a granny-would-approve way. Ahead, find the best quilts to shop that will make any boring bed look just lovely — and sew on, and sew forth.
