A quilt is not just a relaxing bed covering: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans that create our quilts choose high quality vivid materials and organize them in an appealing masterpiece. Choose from our stock of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your taste.
While the fabric pieces are sewn with each other 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 between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and also excellent washing outcomes.
Most of our quilts are sizable enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's measurements is different. You'll find we post the quilt's measurements in addition to the calculated drop for you to compare to the size you need. Kindly do your research before your purchase!
Are our quilts washable?
As a matter of fact, our quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We advise the following standards for ideal handling results:
- Wash in a washing machine with cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use only 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 also 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry detergent. This natural home remedy stops hemorrhage and helps to establish the colors in your quilt.

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
Each and every step of the quilt-making process requires a certain woman's competence. Each of our women specializes in either assembling or quilting. At the very least two ladies are involved in making each quilt. The ladies who stitch the tops together concentrate on piecing certain quilt patterns. Because each quilter's stitches differ, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to become an expert in her work.
