A quilt is not merely a relaxing bed covering: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artisans that design our quilts select top-notch vivid materials and organize them into an appealing work of art. Pick from our stock of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best matches your home design.
Though the pieces of fabric are sewn together by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and superb washing results.
You will find our quilts to be really large in length and width. Most of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's overall size is different as well. We post the quilt's measurements in conjunction with the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you want. It is important to do your measuring before making a purchase!

Did you know?
Over the centuries, many types of solutions have been developed to make it easier for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is paper piecing, which is normally adopted to compose the challenging edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it name specifies, uses an unique paper pattern on top of which the material segments are stitched. The pattern guides the quilter to successfully assemble the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out evenly. Methods such as this are a very good help to our quilt-makers!
