Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA. Every homemade quilt is as unique as the family, busy mother or Amish ladies group who uses a needle and thimble to thread stitch on the quilt. Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

A quilt is not merely a comfortable bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists that make our quilts select top quality colorful materials and arrange them into a distinct masterpiece. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best complements your taste.

Although the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to ensure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and exceptional washing results.

You will find our quilts to be really sizable in length and width. As a matter of fact, almost all of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, every quilt's overall size is different. We post the quilt's dimensions in addition to the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you may need. Definitely do your homework prior to your purchase!

Are our quilts washable?

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

For hundreds of years, a lot of methods have been developed to make it easier for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is called paper piecing, which is normally used to assemble the challenging points of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it name suggests, uses a particular paper pattern on top of which the fabric sections are stitched. The pattern leads the seamstress to perfectly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out flat. Methodologies of this sort as this are a fabulous aid to our quilters!
