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 only a comfy bedspread: it is also a piece of art. The artisans who develop our quilts pick quality vivid fabrics and arrange them in a captivating work of art. Select from our stock of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches 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 fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and superb washing results.

Most of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's sizing is different. We post the quilt's dimensions alongside the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you may need. Definitely do your measuring ahead of making a purchase!

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.
