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 just a relaxing bedspread: it is also a piece of art. The artisans that develop our quilts pick top quality vivid materials and organize them into a distinct masterpiece. Select from our stock of over two hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your style.

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

You will find our quilts to be really generous in length and width. In fact, almost all of our quilts are generous enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's dimensions varies as well. We list the quilt's measurements alongside the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you may need. It is important to do your measuring ahead of buying!

Can you wash these quilts?

Fortunately, our quilts are indeed machine-washable! We recommend complying with these standards for best results:

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

Over the centuries, quite a few solutions have been produced to make it easier for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is paper piecing, which is regularly adopted to piece the complicated angles of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a specific paper pattern on top of which the fabric segments are stitched. The pattern directs the needleworker to accurately assemble the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out evenly. Strategies of this sort as this are a very good help to our quilters!
