    I'd freeze to death without atleast 1 heavy quilt, prefer 2.

    The fire only lasts 2-3 hours after I go to bed and it drops down to maybe 10 degrees in my house.

    In the January/December it usually drops down to -40 celsius at night.

    Not american.

    Fun fact, -40 is the same in Celsius as it is in Fahrenheit.

    Where do you live? In an igloo in Northern Canada?

    I believe the norm in the United States is to have one really thin blanket under one really thick blanket for different purpose. I guess that doesn't leave much room for quilts that may mismatch.

    Northern Alberta in Fort McMurray, the town built right beside of the Oil Sands that everyone loves to hate.

    Ah, so I was very close. At least you have lots of blankets to keep you warm!

    I can't imagine why you'd need quilts when you live in a desert.

    Normally we have sheets and a blanket and then a quilt in the winter. What I consider a quilt is a really thick blanket. My room is always cold so I use a quilt all year long.

    I think of quilts as the thick patchwerk blankets that grandmothers make. Is that not what Europeans call them? A comforter here in the us is a big thick but light and soft bed covering that goes on top of the blankets and sheets. Myself I use a set of sheets, a fleece blanket, and a comforter. I think that's pretty normal for the US. Quilt vs Comforter

    I couldn't imagine sleeping without a duvet, they are so incredibly comfortable.

    Edit: Oh I see, a comforter is a duvet.

    The american description of a comforter is the same as a quilt in the UK.

    thanks for helping me solve this enigma inside of a riddle inside of a question.
    I use a quilt. I have several of them actually. They're my favorite form of warmth provision.

    I use micro fleece sheets and a comforter. If it is warm I just use the micro fleece sheets.

    I used to live in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories and one winter, it got to -77c with the wind (59c base temperature). It was nuts up there during those temperatures.

    I have a couple of comforters, one of which is billed as being 'quilted' and a couple of proper patchwork quilts around the house. The patchwork quilts are too small for the bed, but they are wonderful to curl up on the couch with.

    Now, are you referring to sheets as a light blanket? Because I've never met anyone who doesn't use a fitted bed-sheet and a top-sheet. I do have a blanket that's so thin it could be thought of as a sheet as well, but the thing is enormous.

    I don't use a quilt on my bed, but used to have one hanging on the back of our couch. I sleep with a warm thick fuzzy blanket, a thin wool blanket, and 3 fleece blankets I had made for me a few years ago. It might sound like overkill, but in a 100 year old home with crappy heat, they're pretty much a necessity.
