Choose from our selection of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your style.
Although the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and also excellent washing results.
You will discover our quilts to be remarkably sizable in length and width. The majority of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's sizing is different as well. We list the quilt's measurements with the estimated drop for you to compare to the overall size you are trying to find. Please do your research ahead of making a purchase!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is commonly utilized to describe crafts produced by an artisan in contrast to a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind due to the fact that it is not mass-produced. However, not all the stitching in a handmade quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical devices to create his workmanship, our seamstresses utilize various devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating knife as well as sew them together on the stitching machine. The quilter collaborates with merely thimble, thread, as well as needle to quilt numerous little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as talent to produce a thing uniquely for you.
