A quilt is not just a comfy bed covering: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters that make our quilts select top-notch colorful fabrics and organize them in a creative work of art. Choose from our selection of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your taste.
Though the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth as well as outstanding washing outcomes.
You will find our quilts to be really large in length and width. Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to do away with the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, every quilt's dimensions is different. We list the quilt's measurements with the estimated drop for you to compare to the measurements you may need. Definitely do your homework prior to purchasing!

For hundreds of years, various methodologies have been cultivated to make it easier for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is named paper piecing, which is usually used to combine the intricate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it title signifies, uses a special paper pattern on top of which the material fragments are sewn. The pattern leads the needleworker to properly assemble the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out flat. Procedures of this sort as this are a fabulous support to our quilt-makers!
