A quilt is not only a comfy bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters who develop our quilts select quality vibrant materials and arrange them into an appealing masterpiece. Pick from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your home design.
Although the fabric pieces are sewn with each other by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as exceptional washing outcomes.
You will find our quilts to be relatively sizable in length and width. The majority of our quilts are generous enough to do away with the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's proportions varies as well. We specify the quilt's dimensions in addition to the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are looking for. Definitely do your measuring before purchasing!
Can you wash these quilts?
Fortunately, our quilts are indeed machine-washable! We advise adhering to these standards for best results:
- Wash in a washing machine with only cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use only mild laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry soap. This home remedy stops bleed and helps to establish the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washer stops to decrease creases as well as color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt in the dryer! Line completely dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, however we most definitely suggest washing.
Did you know?
Each step of the quilt-making process needs a particular woman's experience. Each of our women focuses on either piecing or quilting. At least 2 ladies are involved in making each quilt. The ladies that sew the tops with each other specialize in assembling particular quilt patterns. Because each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to end up being a specialist in her work.
