A quilt is not merely a comfy bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artists who design our quilts choose quality vibrant fabrics and arrange them in a creative masterpiece. Select from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your taste.
Though the pieces of fabric are stitched with each other by machine to ensure tighter stitching, 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, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and outstanding washing outcomes.
You will find our quilts to be remarkably generous in length and width. In fact, almost all of our quilts are large enough to eliminate the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's dimensions can be different as well. We designate the quilt's dimensions as well as the estimated drop for you to compare to the measurements you are trying to find. Kindly do your homework ahead of purchasing!
Can you wash these quilts?
Fortunately, our quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We advise complying with these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Wash in a washing machine with cold water on gentle 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, add 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry detergent. This natural home remedy avoids hemorrhage as well as assists in establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washer stops to decrease wrinkles as well as color-bleeding.
- Never put a quilt in the dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, however we most definitely advise washing.
Did you know?
Every step of the quilt-making process calls for a certain woman's expertise. Every one of our women focuses on either assembling or quilting. As a result, a minimum of 2 ladies are associated with making each quilt. The ladies who sew the tops with each other concentrate on assembling particular quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches differ, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to end up being an expert in her work.
