A quilt is not only a cozy bed cover: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters that develop our quilts pick top quality vibrant materials and organize them in an eye-catching masterpiece. Select from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your home design.
Although the pieces of fabric are stitched 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 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and outstanding washing outcomes.
You will discover our quilts to be reasonably generous in length and width. As a matter of fact, the majority of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's dimensions is different. We publish the quilt's measurements together with the determined drop for you to compare to the measurements you may need. Please do your measuring before buying!
Can you wash these quilts?
As a matter of fact, these quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We advise complying with these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Machine wash with completely cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and also 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry detergent. This natural remedy prevents hemorrhage and aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washer stops to decrease wrinkles as well as color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt into the dryer! Line completely dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we definitely advise washing.
Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
Each step of the quilt-making process requires a certain lady's competence. Each of our ladies focuses on either piecing or quilting. For that reason, at the very least two ladies are associated with making each quilt. The ladies who stitch the tops together concentrate on assembling specific quilt patterns. Considering that each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each woman to end up being an expert in her field.
