Rest easy with high-quality sheets and quilts

Lynne Taylor

Position: Designer, Taylor Linens, Temecula, Calif.

Resume: Taylor began designing quilts 20 years ago. She later worked as a marketing representative for home furnishings manufacturers before opening Taylor Linens in 1998.

Quote: "When shopping for a quilt, pay attention to the small details that will tell you how it was made."

Q: What should consumers look for in linens?

A: It depends on what your priorities are. If you want new and different all the time and you're likely to switch out your bedspread or your sheets once a year, then you might not care that much about quality. If you like things that are classic and timeless -- and that will last for years to come -- then you should look for the little details of quality construction.

If you look at a well-made quilt or sheet or even a pillow, you can see the little tiny tucks, the quality of the embroidery, the fine stitching that makes a big difference over time.
