A quilt is not just a cozy bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artists that design our quilts choose high quality colorful materials and organize them in an appealing work of art. Choose from our stock of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your home design.
Though the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make certain 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 two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and superb washing outcomes.
Almost all of our quilts are large enough to take care of the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's dimensions differs. You'll find we publish the quilt's dimensions as well as the estimated drop for you to compare to the proportions you want to have. Please do your research before your purchase!
Are our quilts washable?
As a matter of fact, these quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We recommend complying with these standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Machine wash with only cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use mild laundry detergent, 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 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry detergent. This home remedy stops hemorrhage as well as aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washer quits to decrease creases as well as color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt into the dryer! Line completely dry on a windy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we most definitely advise washing.
Did you know?
The term handmade is frequently utilized to describe crafts produced by a craftsman instead of a factory. Each handmade quilt is unique because it is not mass-produced. Not all the sewing in a hand-crafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to develop his craftsmanship, our seamstresses utilize different tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotary knife as well as sew them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter collaborates with just needle, string, and also thimble to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and ability to create a product distinctly for you.
