Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is frequently made use of to define crafts produced by an artisan in contrast to a factory. Since it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind.

Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical tools to create his workmanship, our seamstresses utilize numerous devices to craft these quilts.
