Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is frequently used to define crafts created by an artisan as opposed to a factory. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind. Not all the stitching in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical tools to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses utilize various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating blade knife and also sew them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter collaborates with only thimble, string, and also needle to quilt thousands of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as skill to produce an item uniquely for you.
