Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA. Every homemade quilt is as unique as the family, busy mother or Amish ladies group who uses a needle and thimble to thread stitch on the quilt. Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

A quilt is not only a relaxing bed covering: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters that develop our quilts pick top quality vivid fabrics and arrange them into an appealing masterpiece. Pick from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best complements your taste.

Though the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make certain tighter sewing, 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, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and also excellent washing outcomes.

Almost all of our quilts are large enough to take care of the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's dimensions varies. We post the quilt's measurements in addition to the estimated drop for you to compare to the overall size you want to have. It is important to do your homework prior to purchasing!

Are our quilts washable?

As a matter of fact, these quilts are certainly washable in a washing machine! We advise the following standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

For hundreds of years, various kinds of solutions have been perfected to make it more convenient for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these solutions is named paper piecing, which is typically applied to compose the elaborate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name indicates, uses a distinct paper pattern on which the material sections are stitched. The pattern guides the needleworker to properly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out flat. Methodologies such as this are a great help to our quilt-makers!
