A quilt is not only a comfortable bed cover: it is also a piece of art. The artists who make our quilts select quality colorful fabrics and arrange them into an eye-catching masterpiece. Pick from our stock of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your style.
Though the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make sure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as excellent washing results.
Most of our quilts are sizable enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's sizing varies.

- Machine wash with completely cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use mild laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This home remedy protects against hemorrhage and aids with protecting the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washer finishes to reduce wrinkles and color-bleeding.
