A quilt is not merely a cozy bed covering: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists that design our quilts choose top-notch vibrant fabrics and arrange them in an appealing masterpiece. Choose from our stock of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your home design.
Although the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to ensure tighter sewing, 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 warranties both warmth and also exceptional washing outcomes.
Most of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's dimensions can be different. You'll find we publish the quilt's measurements alongside the calculated drop for you to compare to the size you are trying to find. Please do your homework before buying!
Yes, our quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We advise adhering to these standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Machine wash with cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This natural home remedy avoids hemorrhage as well as assists in establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washer finishes to reduce wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt in the dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we most definitely advise washing.
Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
For hundreds of years, many different strategies have been cultivated to make it more convenient for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is paper piecing, which is frequently applied to combine the intricate corners of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it name suggests, uses a special paper pattern onto which the cloth pieces are stitched. The pattern helps the needleworker to correctly sew the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out flat. Methodologies of this sort as this are a wonderful help to our quilters!
