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.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

Over the centuries, quite a few tactics have been developed to make it easier for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these strategies is named paper piecing, which is often utilized to piece the challenging points of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name indicates, uses a specific paper pattern on which the fabric fragments are stitched. The pattern directs the needleworker to successfully assemble the pieces together so that the completed top will lay out evenly. Procedures of this sort as this are a fantastic help to our quilters!
