A quilt is not just a comfy bedspread: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists who make our quilts pick top-notch vibrant materials and arrange them in an appealing work of art. Pick from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your home design.
Although the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make sure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as superb washing results.
Almost all of our quilts are large enough to take care of the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's overall size is different. You'll find we post the quilt's measurements alongside the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are trying to find. Definitely do your homework prior to your purchase!
Fortunately, our quilts are indeed machine-washable! We recommend complying with these guidelines for best results:
- Machine wash with cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use only light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the initial washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry soap. This home remedy protects against bleed and aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washer finishes to minimize wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never ever place a quilt into the clothes dryer! Line completely dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, however we certainly recommend washing.
