A quilt is not just a cozy bed covering: it is also a piece of art. The artisans that design our quilts select quality vivid fabrics and organize them into an attractive masterpiece. Select from our selection of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your taste.
While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also outstanding washing results.
Most of our quilts are generous enough to take care of the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's proportions can be different. We designate the quilt's measurements along with the determined drop for you to compare to the measurements you are looking for. Please do your research before your purchase!
Yes, our quilts are indeed machine-washable! We suggest the following standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Machine wash with only 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, add 1/2 cup vinegar and also 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This natural remedy prevents bleed and helps to protect the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washer stops to reduce wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never ever place a quilt into the clothes dryer! Line completely dry on a windy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we definitely advise washing.

Over the centuries, various methodologies have been perfected to make it much easier for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is paper piecing, which is nearly always applied to assemble the challenging angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it name indicates, uses a special paper pattern on which the fabric segments are stitched. The pattern leads the seamstress to perfectly assemble the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out evenly. Strategies such as this are an excellent aid to our quilters!
