A quilt is not only a relaxing bed cover: it is also a piece of art. The artists who create our quilts select top quality colorful fabrics and organize them into an attractive masterpiece. Select from our selection of over two hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your taste.
Although the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and superb washing results.
You will discover our quilts to be remarkably generous in length and width. Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's size differs as well. We list the quilt's measurements in conjunction with the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you need. Definitely do your research before your purchase!
Fortunately, these quilts are indeed machine-washable! We recommend the following guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Machine wash with only cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use light laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the initial washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt along with the laundry detergent. This natural remedy prevents bleed as well as aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washer finishes to lessen wrinkles as well as color-bleeding.
