It includes a scalloped brown border and over 350 yards of hand quilting. This beautiful quilt was hand-quilted by Amanda Kuhns. On a queen bed, this quilt will have 20.5 inches of drop per side.

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 only a cozy bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters who make our quilts choose top quality vivid materials and arrange them into an attractive masterpiece. Select from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your home design.

Although the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and also outstanding washing results.

You will find our quilts to be really sizable in length and width. Most of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each and every quilt's overall size is different. You'll find we list the quilt's dimensions with the estimated drop for you to compare to the overall size you want. It is important to do your homework before buying!

Did you know?

The term handmade is commonly used to define crafts created by an artisan in contrast to a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is unique because it is not mass-produced. Not all the stitching in a handcrafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical tools to create his workmanship, our seamstresses utilize different devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary blade knife and sew them together on the sewing machine. The quilter functions with merely needle, thimble, as well as string to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also skill to produce a thing distinctively for you.
