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.

While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to guarantee 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 warranties both heat and outstanding washing results.

You will find our quilts to be remarkably sizable in length and width. Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to minimize the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's overall size is different as well. You'll find we specify the quilt's dimensions in addition to the calculated drop for you to compare to the proportions you may need. Definitely do your measuring before buying!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

Each step of the quilt-making process needs a specific lady's proficiency. Every one of our women specializes in either assembling or quilting. At the very least 2 ladies are involved in making each quilt. The ladies who stitch the tops together concentrate on piecing certain quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each lady to become an expert in her work.
