A quilt is not only a cozy bed cover: it is also a piece of art. The artisans that make our quilts pick high quality vibrant fabrics and organize them into an eye-catching work of art. Select from our selection of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your style.
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 in between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as superb washing outcomes.
The majority of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's overall size is different. We specify the quilt's measurements with the calculated drop for you to compare to the size you want. It is important to do your homework before making a purchase!
Are our quilts washable?
As a matter of fact, these quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We suggest complying with these guidelines for best results:
- Machine wash with completely cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use only mild 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 as well as 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This home remedy avoids hemorrhage and aids with protecting the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washer quits to lessen wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt into the dryer! Line dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, however we most definitely recommend washing.
Did you know?
For hundreds of years, a number of solutions have been developed to make it much easier for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is called paper piecing, which is regularly applied to assemble the complicated angles of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it title implies, uses a specific paper pattern onto which the fabric cuts are sewn. The pattern guides the needleworker to correctly sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out flat. Strategies of this sort as this are a marvelous aid to our quilt-makers!
