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 merely a comfortable bedspread: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters who create our quilts select high quality vivid materials and arrange them in a captivating work of art. Select from our selection of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best matches your taste.

While the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and also exceptional washing outcomes.

Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's measurements can be different. You'll find we list the quilt's measurements in addition to the estimated drop for you to compare to the proportions you want. Please do your homework ahead of making a purchase!
