Select from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your taste.
While the pieces of fabric are stitched together 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 between those two layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and excellent washing results.
Just about all of our quilts are generous enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's measurements varies. You'll find we list the quilt's dimensions with the estimated drop for you to compare to the proportions you may need. Please do your research ahead of purchasing!
As a matter of fact, our quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We advise complying with these standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Wash in a washing machine with completely cold water on gentle cycle.

- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we most definitely recommend washing.
Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
Every step of the quilt-making process calls for a particular woman's competence. Every one of our ladies specializes in either assembling or quilting. At least two ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The ladies that sew the tops with each other concentrate on piecing certain quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system allows each lady to come to be an expert in her work.
