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 just a comfy blanket: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The crafters who create our quilts pick top-notch vibrant fabrics and arrange them in an attractive work of art. Pick from our stock of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your taste.

Though the fabric pieces are stitched together 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 warmth as well as outstanding washing outcomes.

Just about all of our quilts are sizable enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's dimensions can be different. We specify the quilt's dimensions along with the calculated drop for you to compare to the size you are looking for. Kindly do your homework prior to your purchase!

Are our quilts washable?

As a matter of fact, these quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We advise the following guidelines for ideal handling results:

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

For hundreds of years, a number of methodologies have been cultivated to make it less complicated for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these methods is named paper piecing, which is normally used to put together the challenging edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it name specifies, uses a particular paper pattern onto which the material fragments are stitched. The pattern leads the seamstress to successfully assemble the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out evenly. Techniques of this sort as this are a marvelous support to our quilt-makers!
