A quilt is not only a cozy blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists who create our quilts choose top quality colorful fabrics and organize them in a distinct masterpiece. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your style.
While the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to ensure 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 two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and excellent washing results.
Most of our quilts are sizable enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's sizing differs. We publish the quilt's measurements in addition to the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you want to have. Please do your measuring prior to purchasing!
