A quilt is not only a cozy bed covering: it is also a piece of art. The artists who develop our quilts pick high quality colorful materials and arrange them into an appealing work of art. Pick from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your home design.
Though the fabric pieces are stitched together by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics 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 warmth and superb washing outcomes.
Just about all of our quilts are large enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's proportions differs. We designate the quilt's dimensions with the estimated drop for you to compare to the measurements you want to have. Please do your measuring ahead of making a purchase!

Yes, these quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We recommend complying with these standards for ideal handling results:

- Use mild laundry soap, 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 also 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry detergent. This natural home remedy prevents hemorrhage as well as aids with protecting the colors in your quilt.

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
Over the centuries, many types of strategies have been developed to make it less complicated for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is named paper piecing, which is very often employed to put together the elaborate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it name signifies, uses a distinct paper pattern on which the material sections are stitched. The pattern directs the quilter to perfectly assemble the pieces together so that the completed top will lay out evenly. Methods such as this are a wonderful aid to our quilt-makers!
