A quilt is not merely a relaxing bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists who develop our quilts select high quality vivid fabrics and organize them into a distinct work of art. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best complements your home design.
While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make sure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as excellent washing results.
You will find our quilts to be relatively generous in length and width. The majority of our quilts are generous enough to do away with the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's measurements is different as well. You'll find we specify the quilt's measurements along with the determined drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are trying to find. It is important to do your homework prior to making a purchase!
Can you wash these quilts?
Yes, these quilts are indeed machine-washable! We advise adhering to these guidelines for ideal handling results:
- Wash in a washing machine with completely cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use light laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This natural home remedy avoids hemorrhage and also assists in establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washing machine stops to minimize wrinkles as well as color-bleeding.
- Never ever place a quilt in the dryer! Line completely dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we certainly suggest washing.
