A quilt is not just a relaxing bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artists who create our quilts pick top quality colorful fabrics and arrange them in an appealing work of art. Select from our stock of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your taste.
Though the pieces of fabric 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 in between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and exceptional washing outcomes.
Most of our quilts are sizable enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's dimensions varies. We post the quilt's dimensions together with the calculated drop for you to compare to the overall size you may need. Kindly do your measuring prior to your purchase!
Can you wash these quilts?
Fortunately, these quilts are indeed machine-washable! We advise complying with these standards for ideal handling results:
- Wash in a washing machine with only cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use only light laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry detergent. This natural home remedy avoids bleed as well as assists in establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washing machine quits to decrease wrinkles as well as color-bleeding.
- Never put a quilt in the clothes dryer! Line completely dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we definitely advise washing.
Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
Each step of the quilt-making process needs a specific lady's experience. Each of our ladies specializes in either assembling or quilting. At the very least 2 ladies are involved in making each quilt. The ladies who sew the tops with each other focus on piecing particular quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each woman to become a specialist in her work.
