A quilt is not only a cozy bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists that develop our quilts select high quality colorful fabrics and arrange them in an appealing masterpiece. Pick from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your home design.
While the pieces of fabric are stitched with each other by machine to make sure 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 warranties both warmth as well as superb washing results.
The majority of our quilts are large enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's overall size is different. We specify the quilt's measurements as well as the calculated drop for you to compare to the measurements you need. Kindly do your research before your purchase!
Can you wash these quilts?
Yes, our quilts are certainly washable in a washing machine! We advise adhering to these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Machine wash with completely cold water on gentle 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 tablespoons of salt along with the laundry soap. This natural remedy stops hemorrhage as well as aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washing machine finishes to reduce creases and also color-bleeding.
- Never ever place a quilt into the clothes dryer! Line completely dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we definitely recommend washing.
Did you know?
Each step of the quilt-making process requires a specific woman's experience. Each of our women concentrates on either assembling or quilting. Consequently, at the very least two ladies are associated with making each quilt. The ladies who sew the tops together specialize in assembling certain quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches differ, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system allows each woman to become an expert in her work.
