A quilt is not only a relaxing blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists who design our quilts select top quality colorful fabrics and arrange them in an attractive masterpiece. Select from our selection of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your style.
Though the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to guarantee 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 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as superb washing outcomes.
You will discover our quilts to be rather sizable in length and width. As a matter of fact, well-nigh of our quilts are large enough to take care of the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each and every quilt's size varies. You'll find we post the quilt's dimensions together with the calculated drop for you to compare to the overall size you are trying to find. Please do your measuring prior to making a purchase!
Are our quilts washable?
Yes, our quilts are certainly machine-washable! We advise complying with these guidelines for best results:
- Machine wash with only cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use only light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry soap. This natural home remedy protects against hemorrhage and also helps to establish the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washing machine quits to decrease creases and color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt into the clothes dryer! Line dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we definitely recommend washing.
Did you know?
For hundreds of years, all sorts of strategies have been developed to make it more convenient for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is called paper piecing, which is regularly utilized to compose the intricate corners of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a special paper pattern on top of which the fabric cuts are stitched. The pattern guides the seamstress to correctly stitch the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out evenly. Methodologies of this sort as this are a marvelous aid to our quilters!
