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.

While the pieces of fabric 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 between those two layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and also excellent washing outcomes.

The majority of our quilts are large enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's dimensions differs. You'll find we designate the quilt's measurements alongside the calculated drop for you to compare to the size you want. It is important to do your research ahead of purchasing!
