Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA.

Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

Although the fabric pieces are stitched with each other by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and also excellent washing results.

You will find our quilts to be rather large in length and width. Actuality, well-nigh of our quilts are large enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is commonly made use of to describe crafts produced by a craftsman in contrast to a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind because it is not mass-produced. Not all the stitching in a hand-crafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical devices to develop his craftsmanship, our seamstresses make use of various devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary blade knife and sew them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter deals with just string, needle, as well as thimble to quilt hundreds of little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also skill to develop an item distinctively for you.
