Can you wash these quilts?
Fortunately, these quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We recommend adhering to these standards for best results:
- Machine wash with only cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use mild laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the initial washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry detergent. This natural home remedy avoids bleed as well as assists in establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washing machine quits to decrease wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never put a quilt into the dryer! Line completely dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we definitely suggest washing.
Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
Each step of the quilt-making process requires a certain woman's competence. Each of our women specializes in either piecing or quilting. Therefore, at the very least 2 ladies are involved in making each quilt. The women who stitch the tops with each other concentrate on piecing specific quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches are different, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to become a professional in her field.
