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 comfy bed cover: it is also a piece of art. The artisans who create our quilts select high quality colorful fabrics and organize them in an eye-catching work of art. Select from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your home design.

Although the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and exceptional washing results.

Most of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's size is different. You'll find we post the quilt's measurements in conjunction with the estimated drop for you to compare to the size you are looking for. Please do your research prior to making a purchase!

Did you know?

Over the centuries, many types of methods have been produced to make it much simpler for quilters to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these methods is paper piecing, which is often used to compose the intricate points of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it name signifies, uses a specific paper pattern on which the fabric fragments are sewn. The pattern directs the quilter to correctly assemble the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out flat. Methods such as this are a fabulous support to our quilt-makers!
