Well, hello. Been some time, hasn't it? Here's something nice to look at though to make up for it.
This new quilt cover set came courtesy of Sleepy Bum, who asked me to road test one of their quilt cover sets and let you know all about it. Sleepy Bum is an Australian company which has the most enormous range of bed linen I've come across on the one site - have a look and you'll see what I mean - loads of colours, patterns and styles to choose from, with a section of quilts for kids as well.
I was a bit overwhelmed when it came to choosing a set, but to make selecting a quilt cover easier the site allows you to filter by patterns, solid colours, size, colour, material or thread count. To keep things simple I searched by patterns and colour, knowing that I wanted something with black in it.
After going through all the options, I chose the Athens In Grid Lines Stripes set. This set comes with a quilt cover, 2 pillow cases and a flat sheet all made from 200 thread count, 100% combed cotton. The bit I liked best? Both the quilt cover and pillow cases are reversible. That means 4 different looks from the same quilt set - grid lines & grid lines, grid lines & stripes, stripes & stripes or stripes & grid lines!
The combed cotton fabric used for the cover is super soft and means that you don't end up with lots of creases in the cover or cases after washing, so everything is very easy care. I also found that the fabric was nice and warm to sleep under/on.
Stripes & stripes - my favourite combination.
I think this is great value bedding for the price. All orders over $99 receive free shipping and there is also a 30 day money back guarantee. Most items are also currently on sale, so there's no reason not to go and have a look at Sleepy Bum right now :)
