A quilt is not only a cozy bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artists that develop our quilts choose top-notch colorful fabrics and arrange them into an appealing masterpiece. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your taste.
While the fabric pieces are stitched with each other by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials 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 also superb washing results.
Just about all of our quilts are large enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's measurements is different. We post the quilt's measurements together with the calculated drop for you to compare to the overall size you are looking for. Definitely do your homework ahead of making a purchase!
As a matter of fact, our quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We recommend complying with these guidelines for best results:
- Wash in a washing machine with cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use mild laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the initial washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the laundry detergent. This natural remedy prevents hemorrhage and helps to establish the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washing machine stops to decrease wrinkles and also color-bleeding.
- Never put a quilt in the clothes dryer! Line dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we certainly advise washing.
Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia
Every step of the quilt-making process calls for a particular lady's know-how. Every one of our ladies focuses on either assembling or quilting. Therefore, at the very least two ladies are associated with making each quilt. The women that sew the tops with each other focus on piecing specific quilt patterns. Because each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each woman to become a specialist in her field.
