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 only a relaxing bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists who design our quilts select top-notch colorful fabrics and arrange them in a creative work of art. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your taste.

Although the pieces of fabric are sewn together by machine to make certain tighter sewing, 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, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and also exceptional washing outcomes.

The majority of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's proportions differs. We publish the quilt's measurements alongside the estimated drop for you to compare to the overall size you want. Definitely do your research ahead of making a purchase!

Every step of the quilt-making process requires a certain woman's experience. Each of our ladies specializes in either assembling or quilting. At least two ladies are included in making each quilt. The women that sew the tops together concentrate on piecing certain quilt patterns. Considering that each quilter's stitches vary, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each lady to become an expert in her field.
