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 merely a relaxing blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters who develop our quilts choose high quality vivid fabrics and arrange them into a creative work of art. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your style.

While the fabric pieces are stitched 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 in between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and exceptional washing outcomes.

You will discover our quilts to be really generous in length and width. Most of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's dimensions varies. We publish the quilt's measurements together with the determined drop for you to compare to the overall size you are trying to find. It is important to do your research before buying!

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

Each step of the quilt-making process needs a certain woman's know-how. Every one of our ladies specializes in either assembling or quilting. At least two ladies are included in making each quilt. The ladies who stitch the tops with each other focus on assembling particular quilt patterns. Considering that each quilter's stitches differ, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to end up being a professional in her work.
