A quilt is not only a comfy bed covering: it is also a piece of art. The crafters who develop our quilts choose high quality vibrant fabrics and arrange them in a captivating work of art. Choose from our selection of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your taste.
While the fabric pieces are stitched together by machine to ensure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as excellent washing results.
You will discover our quilts to be remarkably large in length and width. Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's measurements differs as well. You'll find we list the quilt's dimensions as well as the determined drop for you to compare to the measurements you may need. It is important to do your measuring prior to making a purchase!
Can you wash these quilts?
Yes, these quilts are indeed machine-washable! We recommend the following standards for best results:
- Wash in a washing machine with cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the initial washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and also 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry detergent. This natural home remedy protects against bleed and assists in protecting the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washing machine stops to decrease wrinkles as well as color-bleeding.
- Never ever place a quilt into the clothes dryer! Line dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we absolutely suggest washing.
Did you know?
Over the centuries, various kinds of methods have been developed to make it easier for quilters to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is named paper piecing, which is very often applied to put together the complex points of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it name suggests, uses a special paper pattern on which the cloth cuts are sewn. The pattern guides the quilter to properly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out evenly. Techniques of this sort as this are a great support to our quilters!
