Postage Stamp Quilt
This Postage Stamp Quilt is beautifully hand stitched by one Amish women in Lancaster, PA. The design is known as the Postage Stamp and will be sure to add a lovely artistic touch to any bedroom.
A quilt is not only a cozy bed cover: it is also a piece of art. The artists who make our quilts choose top-notch vivid materials and arrange them into a creative work of art. Choose from our selection of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your home design.
While the pieces of fabric are stitched with each other by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and excellent washing results.
You will discover our quilts to be rather generous in length and width. In fact, almost all of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each and every quilt's dimensions differs. We specify the quilt's dimensions alongside the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are looking for. Definitely do your homework before buying!
Are our quilts washable?
Yes, these quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We recommend the following guidelines for best results:
- Machine wash with only cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the laundry detergent. This natural remedy protects against hemorrhage as well as assists in establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washer finishes to lessen creases as well as color-bleeding.
