A quilt is not only a comfy blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans that develop our quilts choose quality vivid materials and arrange them into an eye-catching masterpiece. Choose from our stock of over two hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your style.
Though the fabric pieces are stitched together by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also excellent washing outcomes.
The majority of our quilts are generous enough to take care of the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's measurements varies. You'll find we publish the quilt's dimensions together with the calculated drop for you to compare to the proportions you need. Definitely do your measuring ahead of making a purchase!
Fortunately, these quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We recommend complying with these guidelines for ideal handling results:
- Wash in a washing machine with cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use only mild laundry soap, 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 and also 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry soap. This natural home remedy prevents hemorrhage and also helps to establish the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washing machine stops to reduce wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt in the dryer! Line completely dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we most definitely recommend washing.
Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
Every step of the quilt-making process needs a particular lady's expertise. Every one of our ladies specializes in either piecing or quilting. At the very least 2 ladies are involved in making each quilt. The ladies who sew the tops with each other focus on piecing specific quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each lady to come to be a specialist in her field.
