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.
