A quilt is not merely a comfy blanket: it is also a piece of art. The artisans who develop our quilts choose high quality vibrant fabrics and organize them into an eye-catching work of art. Choose from our selection of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your home design.
Though the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make certain 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 guaranties both heat and superb washing outcomes.
Most of our quilts are large enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's proportions can be different. We list the quilt's measurements alongside the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you want. Definitely do your research ahead of your purchase!
Yes, our quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We advise the following standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Machine wash with completely cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use light laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt along with the laundry detergent. This home remedy protects against bleed and assists in establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washer stops to lessen wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never ever place a quilt in the clothes dryer! Line dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we certainly suggest washing.
Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia
Each step of the quilt-making process calls for a certain woman's expertise. Each of our women focuses on either assembling or quilting. At the very least two ladies are involved in making each quilt. The women who sew the tops with each other focus on assembling specific quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches differ, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each woman to come to be a specialist in her work.
