A quilt is not merely a cozy bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans who design our quilts pick quality vibrant fabrics and arrange them in an appealing masterpiece. Choose from our stock of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your style.
While the pieces of fabric are stitched with each other by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as superb washing outcomes.
Just about all of our quilts are sizable enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's measurements varies. We designate the quilt's measurements as well as the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you want. It is important to do your research ahead of your purchase!
