The Coverlet That Stole Jane’s Heart


Kreta CoverletThe year was 1999. Jane was wistfully perusing a home magazine with her sisters when she found the Garnet Hill coverlet of her dreams. “I fell in love with the print immediately, because it reminded me of my grandmother’s bedroom quilts,” she recalled fondly.

Fortunately, her sisters were paying attention and enlisted her brother to chip in on Jane’s Christmas gift that year. It was a good call on their part. “The pattern is a timeless classic, and has been the cover on my bed for almost 17 years!”

Jane’s coverlet still looks beautiful after 17 years.


We checked in with our Customer Service Manager, Erin, who promptly named the coverlet. “I knew it was the Kreta Coverlet the moment I saw Jane’s photo. I joined Garnet Hill in 1996, the year the Kreta Coverlet was first offered, and it was one of the first items I owned — 20 years ago!”
