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!
Can you wash these quilts?
As a matter of fact, these quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We recommend the following guidelines for best results:
- Machine wash with cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt along with the laundry soap. This natural home remedy stops bleed and aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washing machine stops to minimize wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never ever put a quilt in the clothes dryer! Line completely dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, however we absolutely advise washing.
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.
