A quilt is not just a cozy bed cover: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists who create our quilts pick high quality colorful fabrics and organize them into an attractive masterpiece. Pick from our selection of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your home design.
While the pieces of fabric are stitched with each other by machine to ensure tighter sewing, 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, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as exceptional washing outcomes.
The majority of our quilts are sizable enough to eliminate the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's measurements differs. You'll find we designate the quilt's measurements in conjunction with the calculated drop for you to compare to the measurements you want to have. Kindly do your measuring prior to buying!

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia
For hundreds of years, an array of strategies have been cultivated to make it less complicated for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these strategies is called paper piecing, which is generally utilized to combine the complicated corners of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it title indicates, uses an unique paper pattern onto which the material segments are stitched. The pattern directs the needleworker to properly sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out flat. Strategies of this sort as this are a wonderful help to our quilt-makers!
