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. Many hours of detailed work by skilled hands produced this quilt. The quilt is initialed and dated. On a king bed this quilt will allow 17 inches of drop per side.

A quilt is not merely a comfortable bed covering: it is also a piece of art. The crafters who make our quilts pick top quality vibrant fabrics and arrange them in an eye-catching masterpiece. Pick from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your taste.

While the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and superb washing outcomes.

You will find our quilts to be reasonably large in length and width. Most of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's overall size is different as well. You'll find we list the quilt's measurements in addition to the estimated drop for you to compare to the overall size you want. Definitely do your measuring ahead of purchasing!

Yes, these quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We recommend adhering to these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is commonly made use of to describe crafts produced by a craftsman instead of a factory. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind. Not all the sewing in a hand-crafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical devices to develop his workmanship, our seamstresses make use of various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary blade knife and stitch them together on the stitching machine. The quilter deals with only needle, thimble, and thread to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as ability to develop an item uniquely for you.
