A quilt is not just a comfy bed cover: it is also a piece of art. The artists that make our quilts pick high quality vivid fabrics and organize them into an appealing work of art. Pick from our stock of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your taste.
Although the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to ensure tighter stitching, 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 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and also outstanding washing results.
You will discover our quilts to be remarkably generous in length and width. As a matter of fact, almost all of our quilts are large enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's proportions is different as well. We specify the quilt's dimensions in conjunction with the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you may need. Please do your measuring before making a purchase!
Can you wash these quilts?
As a matter of fact, our quilts are certainly machine-washable! We suggest complying with these standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Machine wash with only cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use light laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This natural home remedy protects against hemorrhage and aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washer quits to reduce creases and also color-bleeding.
- Never put a quilt in the dryer! Line dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we certainly suggest washing.
Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is typically used to define crafts created by a craftsman rather than a factory. Each handmade quilt is special since it is not mass-produced. However, not all the stitching in a handcrafted quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to create his workmanship, our seamstresses utilize numerous devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary knife as well as sew them together on the stitching machine. The quilter collaborates with just thimble, string, as well as needle to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and talent to create an item distinctively for you.
