A quilt is not only a relaxing bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans that create our quilts pick high quality colorful materials and organize them in a distinct work of art. Select from our stock of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your home design.
While the fabric pieces are sewn together 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 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as superb washing results.
You will discover our quilts to be rather generous in length and width. Most of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's measurements differs. We publish the quilt's measurements together with the estimated drop for you to compare to the measurements you may need. It is important to do your measuring prior to your purchase!
Are our quilts washable?

- Wash in a washing machine with completely cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use only mild laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and also 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the laundry detergent. This natural home remedy avoids bleed and helps to protect the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washing machine stops to minimize creases as well as color-bleeding.
- Never ever place a quilt into the dryer! Line completely dry on a breezy day.
