Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA.

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 comfortable blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The artisans who create our quilts select quality colorful fabrics and organize them into an appealing 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 pieces of fabric are stitched 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 between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as outstanding washing outcomes.

You will discover our quilts to be really sizable in length and width. Actuality, the majority of our quilts are sizable enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's dimensions varies as well. You'll find we designate the quilt's dimensions in addition to the calculated drop for you to compare to the size you want to have. Kindly do your research ahead of your purchase!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

Over the centuries, various procedures have been perfected to make it less complicated for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is paper piecing, which is often times used to assemble the intricate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it title designates, uses a specific paper pattern onto which the fabric fragments are stitched. The pattern directs the quilter to accurately sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out flat. Methodologies such as this are a very good support to our quilt-makers!
