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!
Fortunately, our quilts are indeed machine-washable! We suggest the following standards for ideal handling results:
- Wash in a washing machine with completely cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use only mild laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry detergent. This natural home remedy prevents hemorrhage and aids with protecting the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washing machine stops to minimize wrinkles as well as color-bleeding.
- Never ever put a quilt in the dryer! Line dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we most definitely advise washing.
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!
