Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is commonly utilized to define crafts created by an artisan in contrast to a factory. Each handmade quilt is unique since it is not mass-produced. However, not all the stitching in a hand-made quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use various devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary blade knife and stitch them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter collaborates with merely thread, needle, as well as thimble to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as skill to produce a thing distinctly for you.
