A quilt is not merely a relaxing bed covering: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists who make our quilts select quality colorful fabrics and organize them into an attractive masterpiece. Select from our stock of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your home design.
Although the fabric pieces are stitched together by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those 2 layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also superb washing outcomes.
Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's sizing varies. You'll find we list the quilt's dimensions together with the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you want to have. Definitely do your homework before buying!
Fortunately, our quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We recommend the following standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Wash in a washing machine with completely 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 natural remedy avoids hemorrhage and also assists in protecting the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washer finishes to decrease wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt in the dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we absolutely advise washing.

Every step of the quilt-making process calls for a specific woman's expertise. Every one of our women focuses on either piecing or quilting. As a result, a minimum of 2 ladies are associated with making each quilt. The women that sew the tops with each other specialize in 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 a specialist in her work.
