Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
Each and every step of the quilt-making process needs a specific lady's experience. Every one of our ladies specializes in either assembling or quilting. Consequently, a minimum of 2 ladies are associated with making each quilt. The ladies who stitch the tops together concentrate on piecing certain quilt patterns. Because each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to become a professional in her work.
