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.

A quilt is not just a comfortable bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artisans that design our quilts choose quality vivid materials and arrange them in an eye-catching work of art. Choose from our selection of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your style.

Although the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and outstanding washing results.

Most of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's overall size differs. We post the quilt's dimensions with the estimated drop for you to compare to the proportions you are looking for. It is important to do your measuring before your purchase!

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

For hundreds of years, many types of strategies have been perfected to make it much simpler for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these solutions is called paper piecing, which is regularly taken advantage of to piece the complicated edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name illustrates, uses an unique paper pattern on which the cloth pieces are sewn. The pattern leads the quilter to correctly sew the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out evenly. Methods such as this are a tremendous aid to our quilters!
