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.

Select from our stock of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your taste.

While the pieces of fabric are sewn with each other by machine to make certain 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 two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and superb washing outcomes.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is generally used to define crafts created by a craftsman in contrast to a manufacturing facility. Since it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is distinct. Nevertheless, not all the sewing in a hand-made quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical devices to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses utilize various devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotary blade knife and also stitch them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter deals with just string, thimble, as well as needle to quilt numerous small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and ability to develop an item distinctly for you.
