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.

The Fire Island Hosta quilt is an exquisite piece of artwork done by Lancaster's fine quilters. This king quilt features a scalloped border and 474 yards of hand-quilting. Many hours of detailed work by skilled hands produced this quilt. The quilt is initialed and dated. On a king bed this quilt will allow 17 inches of drop per side.

A quilt is not merely a comfy blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists who develop our quilts select quality colorful fabrics and organize them into an eye-catching work of art. Choose from our selection of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your style.

Although the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to ensure 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 two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as exceptional washing outcomes.

Just about all of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's size is different. We list the quilt's measurements together with the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you need. It is important to do your measuring before making a purchase!
