A quilt is not only a cozy blanket: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The crafters who create our quilts choose top-notch vibrant fabrics and arrange them into a distinct masterpiece. Select from our selection of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your taste.
While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose 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 superb washing outcomes.
You will discover our quilts to be rather generous in length and width. In fact, most of our quilts are sizable enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's dimensions differs as well. You'll find we list the quilt's dimensions alongside the determined drop for you to compare to the overall size you want to have. It is important to do your measuring prior to making a purchase!
Can you wash these quilts?
Fortunately, our quilts are certainly machine-washable! We suggest the following guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Wash in a washing machine with completely cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use light laundry detergent, 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 as well as 2 tablespoons of salt along with the laundry detergent. This natural home remedy avoids hemorrhage and aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washer finishes to lessen wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never ever place a quilt into the clothes dryer! Line completely dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, however we most definitely advise washing.
Did you know?
Each and every step of the quilt-making process needs a particular woman's proficiency. Each of our ladies concentrates on either assembling or quilting. As a result, at least 2 ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The women that sew the tops with each other focus on piecing specific quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system allows each woman to end up being a specialist in her work.
