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!
Can you wash these quilts?
Fortunately, our quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We recommend complying with these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Machine wash with cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use mild laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry soap. This natural remedy protects against bleed as well as aids with protecting the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washer finishes to decrease wrinkles and also color-bleeding.
- Never ever put a quilt in the clothes dryer! Line completely dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we absolutely advise washing.
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.
