Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia
The term handmade is frequently made use of to define crafts created by a craftsman as opposed to a factory. Due to the fact that it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is special. However, not all the sewing in a hand-made quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical devices to develop his workmanship, our seamstresses make use of different tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating knife and also sew them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter collaborates with only needle, thimble, and string to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and skill to create an item uniquely for you.
