Types of quilts:
A cotton quilt is a type of quilt that is stitched from the threads of plain white cotton with a linen or muslin top. They can be easily made by starting with a square and sewing the sides together. Then it is sewn to form a long strip, which is then sewn together to form rows. This process continues until the entire quilt has been made with fabric strips from each side being attached together at one end and another for top and bottom edges. This method creates an “X” pattern on the back of the quilt, as opposed to sewing squares individually, which creates an “M” pattern on one half of each side.
Cotton quilts may be made from various types of fabrics such as flannel, silk, linen, and even decorative materials. Cotton quilts are the best for keeping you warm in winter, but they need to be light so they don’t become too hot in summer.

What is the difference between Quilt, Doona or Duvet?
A quilt is a thick bedsheet or blanket that has been stitched together or otherwise assembled from patches of cloth.
A duvet is the equivalent item in the bedding industry, typically made of down for warmth and insulating properties. Duvets are usually filled with feathers, duck feathers, or silk.
Too often people ask “What’s the difference between a Quilt, Doona or Duvet?” When these items are purchased it should be made clear which type of item you’ll receive (and if not it should be clearly marked on the product).
Duvets are literally made of down (feathers or duck feathers) while Quilts may or may not be filled with down (duck feather) but they are generally made to look like one. Quilts and duvets are both derived from the word “doona” which means quilt in many different dialects. Modern usage now refers to a duvet as a down filled comforter or top cover. A down filled comforter is often used as a blanket as well as an alternative to the traditional blanket and comforter set. In this sense it is still referred to as a doona because that’s what the early English settlers called it. This term then changed into duvet, mostly because people couldn’t pronounce it right and eventually back into doona
