A quilt is not merely a cozy blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters who create our quilts choose high quality colorful materials and arrange them in a distinct masterpiece. Select from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your taste.
Though the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and also outstanding washing results.
Almost all of our quilts are sizable enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's dimensions differs. You'll find we publish the quilt's measurements along with the estimated drop for you to compare to the sizing you need. Please do your research prior to buying!
Are our quilts washable?
As a matter of fact, our quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We advise adhering to these standards for best results:
- Wash in a washing machine with only cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use only light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and also 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This natural home remedy avoids hemorrhage and also assists in establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washer quits to decrease creases and also color-bleeding.
- Never ever put a quilt into the dryer! Line completely dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, however we most definitely recommend washing.
Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
Each step of the quilt-making process needs a certain lady's proficiency. Each of our ladies concentrates on either piecing or quilting. At the very least 2 ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The women who sew the tops together concentrate on assembling specific quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to become an expert in her field.
