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 only a relaxing bed cover: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters that make our quilts select quality vibrant materials and organize them in a creative masterpiece. Choose from our selection of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your taste.

Though the pieces of fabric are stitched together by machine to make sure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and exceptional washing results.

Most of our quilts are large enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's size can be different. You'll find we post the quilt's measurements in addition to the calculated drop for you to compare to the measurements you are looking for. It is important to do your research before your purchase!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

Each step of the quilt-making process calls for a particular woman's competence. Every one of our ladies specializes in either assembling or quilting. At the very least two ladies are included in making each quilt. The ladies who sew the tops together focus on piecing specific quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to end up being an expert in her work.
