It includes a scalloped border and many yards of hand quilting. This beautiful quilt was hand-quilted by one Amish or Mennonite woman to ensure uniform stitching.

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.

A quilt is not just a comfortable blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists who make our quilts pick high quality vivid materials and arrange them in an appealing masterpiece. Choose from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your taste.

Although the pieces of fabric are sewn together by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as superb washing outcomes.

You will discover our quilts to be relatively generous in length and width. Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to do away with the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's sizing differs. You'll find we post the quilt's measurements in conjunction with the estimated drop for you to compare to the proportions you want. Please do your measuring prior to making a purchase!

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

Each step of the quilt-making process needs a certain woman's proficiency. Every one of our women focuses on either assembling or quilting. For that reason, at least two ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The ladies who sew the tops with each other focus on assembling particular quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches differ, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each woman to end up being a professional in her work.
