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 comfortable bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans that design our quilts select top quality vivid fabrics and arrange them into a distinct work of art. Select from our stock of over two hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your taste.

Though the fabric pieces are sewn with each other by machine to make sure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and exceptional washing outcomes.

You will discover our quilts to be remarkably large in length and width. The majority of our quilts are generous enough to take care of the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's overall size can be different as well. You'll find we list the quilt's dimensions along with the determined drop for you to compare to the dimensions you want to have. Please do your research before your purchase!

Can you wash these quilts?

As a matter of fact, our quilts are certainly washable in a washing machine! We suggest complying with these standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

Over the centuries, many different strategies have been produced to make it less complicated for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is named paper piecing, which is routinely used to put together the elaborate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a particular paper pattern on which the material cuts are sewn. The pattern helps the needleworker to correctly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out evenly. Strategies such as this are a very good support to our quilt-makers!
