A quilt is not merely a relaxing bedspread: it is also a piece of art. The artisans that make our quilts pick top quality vivid fabrics and organize them into an attractive work of art. Pick from our stock of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your style.
Though the fabric pieces are sewn 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 two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as superb washing outcomes.
The majority of our quilts are sizable enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's measurements can be different. We specify the quilt's measurements with the estimated drop for you to compare to the overall size you may need. It is important to do your measuring before purchasing!

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia
