Measures 76″ wide x 106″ long

This Amish twin size quilt, like all our quilts, has a generous length and width. The quilt’s length allows you to tuck any extra length under the pillows, which leaves a gorgeous compass design at the pillow head. The 18-inch drop per side may eliminate the need for a dust rust ruffle. The quilt is hand-quilted with 241 yards of thread by one woman to insure uniform stitching throughout the quilt. It is initialed and dated by its designer.

Mariner’s Compass Quilt

The Mariner’s Compass Quilt is a lovely traditional pattern that is sure to brighten any room! This Amish twin quilt, like all our quilts, is a beautiful addition to any bedroom! It also makes a perfect gift for a special friend!

A quilt is not only a cozy bedspread: it is also a piece of artwork. The artisans who design our quilts choose quality colorful fabrics to arrange into an eye-catching masterpiece. Choose from our selection of over two hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your style.

While the pieces of fabric are sewn together by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and excellent washing results.

Yes, the quilts are indeed machine-washable! We recommend the following guidelines for best results:

  • Machine wash with cold water on gentle cycle.

  • Use mild detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the detergent. This home remedy prevents bleed and helps to set the colors in your quilt.

  • Remove quilt as soon as washer stops to minimize wrinkles and color-bleeding.

  • Never put quilt into the dryer! Line dry on a breezy day.

  • Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we definitely recommend washing.

Quilt Trivia

The Mariner’s Compass quilt originates from one of the earliest quilt designs in America. The patchwork quilt pattern is composed of the thirty-two precise points of the compass, with the stars radiating from the center. The resemblance of a compass card makes it a favorite for those who prefer a more masculine look. Our Amish quilters continue to use this Early-American quilt pattern to make beautiful heirloom Amish quilts.
