Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA.

Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

For hundreds of years, quite a few tactics have been cultivated to make it easier for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is paper piecing, which is generally adopted to piece the complicated angles of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title indicates, uses a particular paper pattern onto which the material pieces are sewn. The pattern leads the needleworker to successfully stitch the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out flat. Solutions of this sort as this are a wonderful aid to our quilters!
