A quilt is not only a comfortable bedspread: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters who create our quilts select top quality vibrant materials and organize them in a distinct work of art. Choose from our selection of over two hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best matches your home design.
Though the fabric pieces are stitched 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 in between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as superb washing results.
The majority of our quilts are large enough to eliminate the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's size is different. You'll find we publish the quilt's measurements as well as the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you may need. It is important to do your research before making a purchase!
Are our quilts washable?
As a matter of fact, our quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We advise the following standards for best results:
- Wash in a washing machine with completely cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use only light laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the initial washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt along with the laundry soap. This natural home remedy stops hemorrhage and assists in establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washing machine finishes to decrease creases and also color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt into the clothes dryer! Line completely dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we certainly recommend washing.
