While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as excellent washing results.

Just as bed heights differ, every quilt's measurements can be different. You'll find we specify the quilt's dimensions in conjunction with the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you want. Please do your homework before making a purchase!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
Each and every step of the quilt-making process requires a certain woman's expertise. Each of our ladies focuses on either assembling or quilting. Consequently, at the very least two ladies are associated with making each quilt. The women who stitch the tops together specialize in piecing specific quilt patterns. Considering that each quilter's stitches differ, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system allows each lady to end up being a specialist in her work.
