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.

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

Each step of the quilt-making process requires a certain woman's knowledge. Each of our ladies concentrates on either piecing or quilting. For that reason, a minimum of two ladies are associated with making each quilt. The women who stitch the tops with each other specialize in assembling specific quilt patterns. Considering that each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each lady to come to be a specialist in her field.
