A quilt is not only a comfortable bed cover: it is also a piece of art. The artisans who develop our quilts choose top quality vibrant fabrics and arrange them in a creative masterpiece. Select from our selection of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your taste.
While the pieces of fabric are stitched with each other by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as excellent washing outcomes.
Just about all of our quilts are large enough to relieve the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's dimensions is different. You'll find we specify the quilt's dimensions as well as the determined drop for you to compare to the proportions you want. Definitely do your measuring prior to your purchase!
As a matter of fact, our quilts are certainly machine-washable! We advise adhering to these guidelines for ideal handling results:
- Machine wash with only cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use only mild laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry detergent. This natural remedy avoids bleed and helps to protect the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washing machine finishes to lessen creases and also color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt in the dryer! Line completely dry on a windy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we definitely recommend washing.

. Paper piecing, as it title indicates, uses a specific paper pattern on top of which the fabric cuts are sewn. The pattern directs the needleworker to properly sew the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out flat. Procedures such as this are a fabulous help to our quilters!
