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 just a comfortable bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters who design our quilts choose quality colorful materials and arrange them in an eye-catching work of art. Choose from our selection of over two hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your taste.
While the fabric pieces are sewn with each other by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth as well as superb washing results.
You will find our quilts to be reasonably large in length and width. In fact, almost all of our quilts are generous enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's overall size is different. We designate the quilt's measurements together with the estimated drop for you to compare to the measurements you need. Kindly do your homework before buying!
Yes, our quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We suggest adhering to these standards for ideal handling results:
- Wash in a washing machine with cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use only light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.)

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia
For hundreds of years, many types of tactics have been developed to make it much easier for quilters to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these strategies is named paper piecing, which is often times applied to piece the complicated edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it name indicates, uses a distinct paper pattern onto which the fabric cuts are stitched. The pattern leads the seamstress to accurately assemble the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out evenly. Methodologies such as this are a fantastic support to our quilters!
