The quilt is all hand-quilted by one lady to insure uniform stitches and is initialed and dated. On a king bed, this quilt will have approximately 18.5 inches of drop.

Measures 115″ wide x 116″ long.

Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA. Every homemade quilt is as unique as the family, busy mother or Amish ladies group who uses a needle and thimble to thread stitch on the quilt. Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is generally made use of to describe crafts produced by a craftsman rather than a factory. Each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind since it is not mass-produced. Nonetheless, not all the sewing in a hand-crafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical tools to create his workmanship, our seamstresses utilize various devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating knife and also sew them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter deals with only string, thimble, and also needle to quilt thousands of little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and skill to produce a product distinctly for you.
