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 just a comfortable blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The artisans that create our quilts select top quality colorful fabrics and organize them into an eye-catching work of art. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best matches your style.

Although the fabric pieces 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 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as exceptional washing results.

You will discover our quilts to be reasonably large in length and width. As a matter of fact, almost all of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, every quilt's measurements can be different. We publish the quilt's measurements together with the estimated drop for you to compare to the proportions you are trying to find. Kindly do your homework prior to purchasing!

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

Each step of the quilt-making process requires a certain woman's competence. Each of our ladies focuses on either piecing or quilting. At least two ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The women who stitch the tops together concentrate on assembling certain quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches differ, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to come to be a specialist in her work.
