A quilt is not merely a comfy blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The artisans that create our quilts choose top quality colorful fabrics and organize them in an attractive work of art. Pick from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your taste.
While the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to ensure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up 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 and outstanding washing outcomes.
You will find our quilts to be really generous in length and width. Actuality, almost all of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's dimensions differs as well. You'll find we list the quilt's dimensions alongside the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you may need. It is important to do your homework ahead of making a purchase!
As a matter of fact, our quilts are certainly washable in a washing machine! We suggest the following standards for ideal handling results:
- Wash in a washing machine with cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the initial washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar and also 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This natural home remedy prevents bleed and helps to establish the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washer finishes to decrease creases as well as color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt in the clothes dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we absolutely recommend washing.
Did you know?
Over the centuries, an array of solutions have been perfected to make it less complicated for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these methods is paper piecing, which is popularly taken advantage of to put together the complex angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it title specifies, uses a special paper pattern on top of which the material sections are stitched. The pattern leads the needleworker to properly sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out evenly. Techniques of this sort as this are a tremendous help to our quilt-makers!
