    Default How much do you spend on a quilt cover?

    I saw one I like at Adairs but it is about $130 - I'm reluctant to spend that much but I really like it...

    How much do you feel comfortable spending on a quilt cover?

    I'd spend that much. Probably around $150 would be my limit though....but if I REALLY loved it I might go a bit higher! You use it everyday, so cost per use goes down pretty quick

    The most I have spent is $120. It would easily be 5 years old, and I still use it regularly, so I could definitely justify that price.

    Hi I love Adairs! I would pay $130 for a queen size cover with pillowcases it was full cotton but only if that was the sale price. Ie full price $250. Adairs often have 40% sale so i wait for that.

    I spent a ridiculous amount on a Ralph Lauren one, but it was 7 years ago when we first got married/moved in and it's been on my bed ever since. So cost per wear totally justifies it I reckon. Depends how much you love it I say.

    It's $125 down from $200 and comes with pillowcases. It's cotton percale - does that mean it's a cotton blend and not pure cotton?

    It's just so pretty...

    I'd spend that and more if I a) loved it and b) knew the quality of the brand. I've spent $300-$400 on quilt covers before. One I kept for over 10 years though so I figure it was a good investment.

    Love the cost per wear idea. I have a relatively new Sheridan one that I have been using a lot - i could alternate this one with the new one.
    Thanks everyone.

    I don't think that's too much to spend if you love it and it's personally affordable to you.

    I generally spend less than $100.
