Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA. Every homemade quilt is as unique as the family, busy mother or Amish ladies group who uses a needle and thimble to thread stitch on the quilt. Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

A quilt is not only a cozy bed covering: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans that develop our quilts choose quality vivid fabrics and organize them in a captivating work of art. Select from our stock of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your taste.

While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and also excellent washing outcomes.

You will find our quilts to be rather sizable in length and width. As a matter of fact, almost all of our quilts are large enough to relieve the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's overall size is different as well. We designate the quilt's dimensions in conjunction with the calculated drop for you to compare to the proportions you want. It is important to do your measuring prior to your purchase!

Can you wash these quilts?

Yes, these quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We recommend adhering to these standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

For hundreds of years, a number of tactics have been perfected to make it more convenient for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is called paper piecing, which is usually adopted to compose the intricate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title specifies, uses a specific paper pattern on which the fabric cuts are stitched. The pattern directs the quilter to successfully sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out evenly. Methods such as this are a fabulous aid to our quilt-makers!
