Colcha para cama de dos plazas


Explanation:
O, simplemente, "colcha de dos plazas". Cama de dos plazas es la traducción más correcta de "double bed". En lo que respecta a "quilt", adhiero a una propuesta anterior en cuanto a sus diferentes opciones. En efecto: acolchado, cobertor, endredón, cubre cama, etc.

Suerte!

edredón de/tipo patchwork para cama doble/matrimonial


Explanation:
A quilt is understood as a patchwork made of several pieces and materials by the quilting bees.

In Spain (Peninsular Spain), patchwork has become a very trendy piece of handwork, and it is known as "edredón de patchwork". You shouldn´t forget the concept of "the making", which is very important to understand the kind of "edredón" you are going to buy.

Regards,

Maria

edredón nórdico


Explanation:
If the quilt refers to a continental quilt/duvet type bedding I would use the term edredón nórdico.
Good luck,

edredón de dos capas/edredón de doble capa/de doble acolchado


Explanation:
It could be referred to the size of the bed, and be "edredón para cama doble",as well. But as you are saying the context is more technical, "bed" could also be understood as "layer", and the term could refer to a doubly layered quilt. Lacking a context, both translations seem possible to me. Quilt is definitely edredón or colcha.
I hope this doesn't leave you more confused about it. Good luck!!!
