    my mom does

    but i wouldn't ever use one

    black sheets and a blanket that feels like it was made of teddy bear hides.

    As someone already linked, comforters are what we term UK Quilts. Some people will also call them duvets. Quilts out here are more decorative (though depending on materials used could be used as a blanket), I know my mother enjoyed making them and hanging them around the house.

    For sleeping though, I use one sheet to separate the mattress from me and then a comforter if its a cooler climate (in CA atm, that is certainly not the case so I sleep on top of it),

    Sheets and a comforter. I use a quilt during the winter if it's a particularly cold night.

    well now that the terminogy has been cleared up, here in the US a quilt is kind of a heavy blanket w/out much stuffing. comforters are generally more fluffy & have more synthetic materials.

    I do, but I sleep better when it's really hot. 6 is only during the middle of winter, where my room can get down to 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

    I think I use it, people on here say a quilt is the same as a comforter...if so then most Americans I know use it. On my bed there is the thing that hugs the mattress (forgot its name), a sheet, the colorful thing (comforter)...are you telling me some people only sleep with just a sheet, literally never seen that. Then I have blankets I put at the end of bed for cold nights.

    I don't know why I laughed so hard at that last part.

    All I use is are afghans. I have four different ones that I switch between once in a while.

    Sheets that cover the mattress, 1 sheet over that, (where you sleep under) and then a comforter on top, which is heavy. If its cold in the winter I will use extra blankets.

    I actually don't cover up at all. Don't like the feeling. If I get chilly, I just use pajama pants.
