Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia
The term handmade is commonly used to define crafts produced by an artisan instead of a factory. Due to the fact that it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is distinct. However, not all the stitching in a handcrafted quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical devices to produce his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use numerous devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating knife and sew them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter functions with merely thimble, needle, and also string to quilt thousands of little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as skill to create an item distinctively for you.
