Cozy & Cool: 10 Summer Quilts

I'm one of those people who always needs to sleep with a blanket. While my husband and I cherish our down comforter for cold nights, he's more than happy to throw it all off during warmer months. Our happy medium is the summer quilt: just enough weight to keep me comfortable, yet light enough to keep him from breaking out in a sweat.

These summer quilts, also known as coverlets, are great on their own, or layered throughout the year. Here are some of my favorites available right now:
