A quilt is not merely a relaxing blanket: it is also a piece of art. The crafters who develop our quilts pick top quality colorful fabrics and organize them in a creative masterpiece. Pick from our stock of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your home design.
While the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as superb washing results.
Most of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's proportions can be different. We post the quilt's measurements alongside the calculated drop for you to compare to the overall size you need. Please do your research ahead of making a purchase!
Are our quilts washable?

- Machine wash with completely cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use light laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the initial washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry detergent. This natural home remedy protects against hemorrhage and also helps to protect the colors in your quilt.

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia
Every step of the quilt-making process calls for a particular lady's proficiency. Every one of our ladies specializes in either assembling or quilting. Therefore, a minimum of 2 ladies are included in making each quilt. The ladies that sew the tops with each other focus on piecing particular quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches are different, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each lady to become an expert in her field.
