A quilt is not just a cozy bedspread: it is also a piece of art. The crafters that design our quilts pick top quality colorful fabrics and arrange them in a captivating work of art. Select from our selection of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your taste.

While the fabric pieces are stitched with each other by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as excellent washing results.

Most of our quilts are large enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's overall size differs. We publish the quilt's measurements with the estimated drop for you to compare to the sizing you may need. It is important to do your homework ahead of purchasing!

Are our quilts washable?

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

The term handmade is commonly made use of to describe crafts produced by an artisan instead of a factory. Due to the fact that it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind. Not all the sewing in a hand-crafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical devices to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses make use of different tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating blade knife and also sew them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter collaborates with merely needle, thimble, as well as string to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and skill to create a product distinctly for you.
