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.

Though the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to ensure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also outstanding washing outcomes.

Just about all of our quilts are sizable enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's proportions differs. We publish the quilt's measurements together with the determined drop for you to compare to the proportions you are trying to find. Please do your homework ahead of purchasing!

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

The term handmade is generally used to define crafts produced by an artisan instead of a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is unique because it is not mass-produced. Not all the stitching in a hand-made quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical tools to develop his craftsmanship, our seamstresses make use of different devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating knife and also stitch them together on the sewing machine. The quilter collaborates with only string, needle, and thimble to quilt numerous small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as skill to develop a product uniquely for you.
