A quilt is not merely a comfortable blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters that make our quilts select quality colorful fabrics and organize them into a captivating work of art. Pick from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your style.
Though the pieces of fabric are stitched with each other by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and excellent washing results.
Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to relieve the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's measurements varies. We specify the quilt's measurements as well as the estimated drop for you to compare to the measurements you are looking for. Please do your measuring prior to your purchase!
Can you wash these quilts?
Fortunately, our quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We suggest complying with these standards for best results:
- Wash in a washing machine with only cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use mild laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry detergent. This natural remedy avoids bleed and aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washing machine finishes to reduce wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never ever put a quilt into the dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, however we absolutely advise washing.
