Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
Each and every step of the quilt-making process calls for a particular woman's knowledge. Every one of our ladies focuses on either assembling or quilting. As a result, a minimum of two ladies are included in making each quilt. The women that sew the tops with each other focus on piecing certain quilt patterns. Considering that each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each woman to end up being a specialist in her field.
