Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA.

Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is frequently made use of to describe crafts created by an artisan instead of a factory. Each handmade quilt is unique since it is not mass-produced. Nonetheless, not all the stitching in a hand-made quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical devices to develop his workmanship, our seamstresses use various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary knife and also stitch them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter deals with just thread, needle, and thimble to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and talent to produce an item uniquely for you.
