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 comfy bedspread: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters that design our quilts select quality colorful materials and organize them into an appealing masterpiece. Pick from our selection of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your taste.

Although the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up 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 outstanding washing results.

You will find our quilts to be remarkably large in length and width. As a matter of fact, nearly all of our quilts are large enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's dimensions is different as well. You'll find we specify the quilt's dimensions alongside the determined drop for you to compare to the measurements you want to have. Please do your research prior to your purchase!
