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.

A quilt is not merely a cozy blanket: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artisans that design our quilts select high quality vibrant fabrics and arrange them in a distinct masterpiece. Pick from our selection of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your home design.

While the fabric pieces are stitched together 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 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as outstanding washing outcomes.

You will find our quilts to be rather large in length and width. The majority of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's dimensions can be different as well. We designate the quilt's dimensions as well as the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are trying to find. Please do your homework prior to buying!

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

Each step of the quilt-making process calls for a certain woman's proficiency. Each of our women specializes in either assembling or quilting. At least 2 ladies are involved in making each quilt. The ladies who sew the tops with each other concentrate on assembling particular quilt patterns. Considering that each quilter's stitches differ, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each woman to end up being an expert in her field.
