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.

While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and excellent washing results.

Most of our quilts are sizable enough to eliminate the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's sizing varies. You'll find we list the quilt's dimensions along with the estimated drop for you to compare to the sizing you are looking for. It is important to do your homework prior to making a purchase!

Did you know?

Over the centuries, many different tactics have been perfected to make it more convenient for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is paper piecing, which is normally employed to piece the intricate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name implies, uses a special paper pattern on top of which the cloth cuts are stitched. The pattern helps the seamstress to accurately assemble the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out evenly. Techniques of this sort as this are a tremendous help to our quilt-makers!
