On a queen bed, this quilt will have 22 inches of drop per side.

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.

While the fabric pieces are stitched with each other by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as superb washing outcomes.

You will find our quilts to be relatively generous in length and width. Actuality, almost all of our quilts are sizable enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's dimensions can be different. We publish the quilt's measurements along with the determined drop for you to compare to the overall size you need.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

Over the centuries, all sorts of methodologies have been developed to make it simpler for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is paper piecing, which is ordinarily employed to piece the complicated points of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it name indicates, uses a specific paper pattern on top of which the fabric cuts are stitched. The pattern directs the quilter to successfully stitch the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out flat. Strategies such as this are an effective support to our quilters!
