Re: Do you own a fabric quilt?

None of ours are handmade but I have 3 quilts for my bed. Well one might be handmade because it's really old.

Re: Do you own a fabric quilt?

I have several because my grandma quilted.

As for what to look for, I wouldn't buy any quilts that are mass marketed. Usually the quality and appearance is poor. I would look for a craftsperson to make one. Perhaps they might even agree to do a custom for you.
