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.

Though the fabric pieces are sewn together by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also exceptional washing results.

You will discover our quilts to be relatively sizable in length and width. Most of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's measurements can be different. We designate the quilt's measurements alongside the determined drop for you to compare to the measurements you may need. Please do your homework ahead of making a purchase!

Did you know?

The term handmade is commonly used to describe crafts created by an artisan as opposed to a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind due to the fact that it is not mass-produced. However, not all the sewing in a handcrafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to produce his workmanship, our seamstresses use various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating blade knife and also stitch them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter deals with only thimble, thread, and also needle to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and ability to produce an item uniquely for you.
