Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia
The term handmade is commonly used to describe crafts created by a craftsman as opposed to a manufacturing facility. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is unique. However, not all the sewing in a hand-made quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical devices to produce his workmanship, our seamstresses make use of different devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating blade knife and sew them together on the sewing machine. The quilter collaborates with merely needle, thimble, and string to quilt hundreds of little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also ability to create a product uniquely for you.
