You will find our quilts to be relatively generous in length and width. Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's proportions varies. We specify the quilt's measurements in addition to the estimated drop for you to compare to the sizing you are trying to find.

Are our quilts washable?
Yes, our quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We advise adhering to these standards for best results:
- Wash in a washing machine with completely cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and also 2 tablespoons of salt along with the laundry soap. This home remedy protects against bleed and assists in protecting the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washer finishes to minimize creases as well as color-bleeding.
- Never ever place a quilt in the clothes dryer! Line dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we most definitely advise washing.
Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia
The term handmade is typically made use of to describe crafts produced by a craftsman as opposed to a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is special due to the fact that it is not mass-produced. Not all the sewing in a hand-made quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical tools to create his workmanship, our seamstresses use various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotary blade knife as well as sew them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter functions with just string, thimble, as well as needle to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also ability to create an item distinctly for you.
