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 cozy blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The artisans that create our quilts choose high quality colorful fabrics and arrange them into a distinct work of art. Select from our selection of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your style.

Although the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials 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 and excellent washing results.

You will discover our quilts to be rather generous in length and width. The majority of our quilts are generous enough to minimize the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's dimensions is different as well. You'll find we specify the quilt's dimensions as well as the calculated drop for you to compare to the overall size you want to have. Kindly do your homework before making a purchase!
