Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

Every step of the quilt-making process requires a certain lady's proficiency. Each of our ladies focuses on either assembling or quilting. Consequently, a minimum of two ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The women who stitch the tops with each other concentrate on assembling specific quilt patterns. Considering that each quilter's stitches are different, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each woman to end up being a specialist in her work.
