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 cozy bed covering: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters who create our quilts pick high quality vivid fabrics and arrange them in an eye-catching work of art. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your taste.

Though the fabric pieces 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 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also outstanding washing results.

The majority of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's dimensions is different. We designate the quilt's dimensions with the calculated drop for you to compare to the measurements you want. Please do your homework before your purchase!

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

For hundreds of years, various tactics have been produced to make it much easier for quilters to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is paper piecing, which is generally taken advantage of to piece the elaborate angles of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title illustrates, uses a particular paper pattern on which the cloth segments are stitched. The pattern leads the needleworker to correctly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out evenly. Methods such as this are a marvelous help to our quilters!
