A quilt is not only a relaxing bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans that develop our quilts choose top-notch vivid materials and organize them into an eye-catching work of art. Select from our selection of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your home design.
Although the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth as well as excellent washing outcomes.
Almost all of our quilts are large enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's dimensions varies. We designate the quilt's measurements in addition to the calculated drop for you to compare to the measurements you want. Kindly do your measuring before purchasing!
Are our quilts washable?
Yes, our quilts are indeed machine-washable! We recommend complying with these guidelines for best results:
- Machine wash with only cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use mild laundry soap, 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 as well as 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This natural remedy avoids bleed and aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washer finishes to lessen wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never ever put a quilt into the dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, however we definitely advise washing.
Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia
For hundreds of years, numerous methodologies have been developed to make it simpler for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is paper piecing, which is routinely adopted to piece the intricate angles of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it name indicates, uses a particular paper pattern onto which the material fragments are sewn. The pattern helps the seamstress to correctly sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out evenly. Techniques of this sort as this are a great aid to our quilt-makers!
