A quilt is not just a relaxing blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists that create our quilts choose high quality vibrant fabrics and organize them in a distinct masterpiece. Choose from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your home design.
While the pieces of fabric are sewn together by machine to make sure 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 two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as superb washing outcomes.
You will discover our quilts to be rather generous in length and width. The majority of our quilts are generous enough to minimize the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's size can be different as well. We specify the quilt's measurements with the estimated drop for you to compare to the overall size you want. Definitely do your measuring ahead of your purchase!
Can you wash these quilts?
Fortunately, our quilts are certainly washable in a washing machine! We advise adhering to these standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Wash in a washing machine with cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use only mild laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the initial washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry detergent. This natural remedy stops hemorrhage as well as assists in establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washer stops to minimize wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt in the dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we most definitely recommend washing.
Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia
Each and every step of the quilt-making process requires a particular woman's expertise. Every one of our ladies specializes in either piecing or quilting. Therefore, at the very least two ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The women that stitch the tops together concentrate on piecing particular quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each woman to come to be a specialist in her work.
