A quilt is not just a relaxing bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artists that create our quilts choose top-notch vibrant fabrics and organize them in an eye-catching work of art. Select from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your style.
Although the pieces of fabric are stitched 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 in between those two layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as excellent washing outcomes.
Most of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's overall size is different. We post the quilt's measurements with the calculated drop for you to compare to the measurements you are trying to find. Please do your measuring prior to purchasing!
Can you wash these quilts?
Yes, our quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We suggest the following guidelines for best results:
- Machine wash with only cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use only mild laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This natural remedy avoids hemorrhage and helps to establish the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washer stops to reduce wrinkles as well as color-bleeding.
- Never ever place a quilt into the dryer! Line dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we certainly advise washing.
Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
For hundreds of years, numerous methodologies have been produced to make it much simpler for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these methods is paper piecing, which is generally taken advantage of to piece the complex points of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it title illustrates, uses a distinct paper pattern onto which the cloth segments are stitched. The pattern leads the seamstress to properly assemble the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out evenly. Tactics of this sort as this are a marvelous help to our quilt-makers!
