A quilt is not only a comfortable blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans who develop our quilts pick top-notch colorful materials and arrange them into an attractive work of art. Select from our selection of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your style.
While the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and exceptional washing results.
Most of our quilts are generous enough to relieve the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's proportions can be different. You'll find we publish the quilt's dimensions along with the determined drop for you to compare to the proportions you want. Please do your research ahead of buying!
Are our quilts washable?
Fortunately, our quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We suggest adhering to these guidelines for ideal handling results:
- Wash in a washing machine with completely 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 and also 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This home remedy avoids bleed as well as assists in protecting the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washer quits to reduce wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt into the dryer! Line completely dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can 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 certain lady's experience. Each of our ladies concentrates on either assembling or quilting. At the very least 2 ladies are involved in making each quilt. The ladies that stitch the tops together focus on piecing specific quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches differ, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to come to be a professional in her work.
