A quilt is not just a relaxing bed cover: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters that design our quilts pick high quality vivid materials and organize them in a distinct masterpiece. Choose from our stock of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your home design.
Although the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make sure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as outstanding washing outcomes.
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 measurements is different. You'll find we list the quilt's dimensions along with the calculated drop for you to compare to the overall size you want. Kindly do your measuring prior to purchasing!
Are our quilts washable?
As a matter of fact, these quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We suggest the following guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Wash in a washing machine with 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 initial washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This home remedy stops hemorrhage and aids with protecting the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washing machine stops to reduce wrinkles and also color-bleeding.

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia
Every step of the quilt-making process calls for a particular woman's proficiency. Every one of our ladies specializes in either piecing or quilting. At the very least two ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The ladies who sew the tops together focus on piecing certain quilt patterns. Because each quilter's stitches vary, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each lady to come to be an expert in her work.
