A quilt is not merely a comfortable bedspread: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists that create our quilts pick top quality vibrant fabrics and organize them into an eye-catching work of art. Select from our selection of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best complements your style.

The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also excellent washing results.
The majority of our quilts are large enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's dimensions varies. We post the quilt's dimensions in conjunction with the calculated drop for you to compare to the overall size you are trying to find. Please do your measuring before purchasing!

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia
For hundreds of years, various sorts of techniques have been perfected to make it simpler for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is named paper piecing, which is typically used to combine the complicated corners of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it title implies, uses a particular paper pattern on top of which the cloth segments are stitched. The pattern leads the needleworker to successfully sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out flat. Tactics such as this are a tremendous aid to our quilters!
