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 only a relaxing bed covering: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists that design our quilts select top quality colorful materials and arrange them in a distinct work of art. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your style.

Although the pieces of fabric are stitched together by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as excellent washing results.

Most of our quilts are sizable enough to eliminate the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's size varies. You'll find we designate the quilt's dimensions as well as the calculated drop for you to compare to the sizing you want to have. Please do your measuring prior to making a purchase!

Washing Quilts?

Fortunately, these quilts are indeed machine-washable! We advise complying with these standards for ideal handling results:

Did you know?

The term handmade is generally used to define crafts produced by a craftsman as opposed to a manufacturing facility. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is distinct. However, not all the stitching in a hand-made quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical devices to create his workmanship, our seamstresses utilize different tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating blade knife and sew them together on the sewing machine. The quilter deals with merely thimble, needle, and thread to quilt thousands of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as talent to produce a product distinctively for you.
