A quilt is not merely a comfortable bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters that make our quilts choose top quality vivid materials and organize them in an appealing work of art. Select from our selection of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your style.
Though the pieces of fabric are stitched with each other by machine to ensure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up 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 outstanding washing outcomes.
You will discover our quilts to be rather generous in length and width. 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 quilt's overall size can be different as well. You'll find we publish the quilt's dimensions as well as the estimated drop for you to compare to the sizing you may need. Kindly do your homework prior to your purchase!
Can you wash these quilts?
As a matter of fact, these quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We recommend adhering to these standards for best results:
- Wash in a washing machine with only cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use only light laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the laundry detergent. This natural home remedy stops bleed as well as aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washing machine quits to decrease creases as well as color-bleeding.
- Never ever place a quilt into the clothes dryer! Line completely dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we definitely recommend washing.
Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
Each step of the quilt-making process needs a specific woman's know-how. Each of our women concentrates on either assembling or quilting. For that reason, a minimum of two ladies are associated with making each quilt. The ladies who sew the tops together concentrate on assembling specific quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system allows each lady to come to be a professional in her field.
