Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA.

Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

The term handmade is commonly utilized to describe crafts produced by an artisan rather than a factory. Due to the fact that it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is unique. Nonetheless, not all the sewing in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical devices to create his workmanship, our seamstresses make use of numerous tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating blade knife as well as stitch them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter collaborates with merely string, needle, and thimble to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also talent to create a thing uniquely for you.
