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:
- Machine wash with completely cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use light laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the initial washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This natural remedy avoids bleed as well as helps to establish the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washing machine finishes to reduce creases as well as color-bleeding.
- Never ever put a quilt in the dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, however we certainly advise washing.
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!
