A quilt is not only a cozy bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artists who design our quilts select quality vivid fabrics and arrange them in a captivating work of art. Pick from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your taste.
Although the fabric pieces are stitched together by machine to ensure 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 warranties both heat as well as exceptional washing outcomes.
Just about all of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's measurements is different. We publish the quilt's measurements together with the determined drop for you to compare to the sizing you may need. It is important to do your measuring ahead of your purchase!
Can you wash these quilts?
Yes, these quilts are indeed machine-washable! We advise the following standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Wash in a washing machine with completely cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use mild laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar and also 2 tablespoons of salt along with the laundry soap. This natural home remedy stops bleed and aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washer quits to lessen creases and also color-bleeding.
- Never ever put a quilt in the clothes dryer! Line dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we definitely recommend washing.
Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
Each step of the quilt-making process requires a certain lady's competence. Every one of our women focuses on either piecing or quilting. As a result, a minimum of two ladies are included in making each quilt. The women who stitch the tops together focus on piecing specific quilt patterns. Considering that each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each woman to come to be a specialist in her field.
