A quilt is not just a comfy bed covering: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters that design our quilts pick top-notch colorful materials and organize them into an appealing work of art. Select from our selection of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your style.
While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and also exceptional washing results.
Most of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's dimensions can be different. You'll find we list the quilt's measurements as well as the estimated drop for you to compare to the size you may need. Kindly do your research ahead of purchasing!
Can you wash these quilts?
Yes, these quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We advise the following guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Wash in a washing machine with cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use mild laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the initial washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry detergent. This home remedy protects against hemorrhage as well as aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washing machine stops to reduce wrinkles and also color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt in the clothes dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we definitely recommend washing.
Did you know?
Each and every step of the quilt-making process calls for a particular woman's proficiency. Each of our women concentrates on either piecing or quilting. As a result, a minimum of two ladies are involved in making each quilt. The ladies that stitch the tops with each other focus on piecing particular quilt patterns. Considering that each quilter's stitches differ, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system allows each woman to end up being an expert in her field.
