A quilt is not merely a cozy blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists that make our quilts pick high quality vivid fabrics and organize them in an attractive masterpiece. Choose from our selection of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your taste.
Although the fabric pieces are stitched with each other 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 between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as outstanding washing results.
The majority of our quilts are large enough to relieve the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's overall size differs. We post the quilt's dimensions in conjunction with the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are trying to find. Please do your research ahead of making a purchase!
As a matter of fact, these quilts are indeed machine-washable! We recommend complying with these guidelines for best results:
- Machine wash with only 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 first washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry detergent. This natural home remedy avoids hemorrhage and also helps to protect the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washing machine quits to reduce wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never put a quilt into the dryer! Line completely dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we certainly advise washing.
Did you know?
Each and every step of the quilt-making process needs a particular woman's know-how. Each of our ladies concentrates on either piecing or quilting. Therefore, at the very least 2 ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The women who stitch the tops with each other 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 woman to come to be an expert in her field.
