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 guarantee 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 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and also exceptional washing results.

Most of our quilts are large enough to take care of the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's sizing can be different. We publish the quilt's dimensions with the calculated drop for you to compare to the proportions you need. Please do your measuring before purchasing!

Did you know?

Over the centuries, various methodologies have been perfected to make it simpler for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is called paper piecing, which is often times used to put together the intricate angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name specifies, uses a specific paper pattern on top of which the fabric cuts are sewn. The pattern helps the quilter to successfully stitch the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out flat. Solutions of this sort as this are an effective aid to our quilters!
