DH and I sleep at different temperatures also. What I do is I take the quilt, he takes the sheet and I only put them together when I make up the bed. What you might possibly do is make one for the overall bed then make a separate one for the foot of the bed folded. If you wanted 2, you might make 2 twins.

Why not use 2 different types of batting in your quilt. One light and one heavy.

I have never seen two quilts on a king size bed.

What works for us is to have a large puffy comforter in a duvet which we purchased from Ikea that covers the entire bed and looks tidy. I have 2 square quilts which I layer on top of that, one set on point. It looks pretty when made up, is actually very fast to make the bed (we don't use a top sheet since the duvet is regularly washed) and gives us each the degree of warmth we want in our own quilt.

I've always had a throw/twin sized quilt on top of all the other layers on the other side of our King-sized bed. Right now, we have a sheet, a blanket, a K-sized quilt and on my side the extra. Sometimes before we put on the blanket DH would also put a throw quilt on his side. The two smaller quilts don't match the King-sized and get folded up during the day most of the time.

I think - as others have suggested - have a big comforter/quilt/spread that covers the whole mattress - and then cover your side of the bed with an extra cover/blanket/quilt.

If you want it to look tidier during the day - just fold up the part that covers your side of the bed.

A different approach that we considered -- have two matching twin or double duvet-covered comforters, one for each side of the bed with the prefered warmth of comforter , then a more decorative quilt on top, either on point or centered.
