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.

Though the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also exceptional washing outcomes.

Most of our quilts are large enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's measurements can be different. You'll find we designate the quilt's dimensions in addition to the estimated drop for you to compare to the proportions you want. Please do your measuring ahead of buying!

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is generally used to define crafts created by a craftsman in contrast to a factory. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind. Not all the stitching in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical devices to produce his workmanship, our seamstresses use numerous tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary blade knife and stitch them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter collaborates with only thimble, needle, and thread to quilt numerous small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and skill to produce a thing uniquely for you.
