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.

Did you know?

The term handmade is frequently used to define crafts created by a craftsman as opposed to a factory. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is special. Nevertheless, not all the stitching in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical devices to produce his workmanship, our seamstresses use different devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating blade knife and also sew them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter works with only thimble, needle, and thread to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as skill to develop an item distinctly for you.
