Pick from our selection of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your home design.
Though the fabric pieces are sewn together by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and exceptional washing outcomes.
Most of our quilts are sizable enough to take care of the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's dimensions is different. We post the quilt's measurements as well as the estimated drop for you to compare to the size you may need. It is important to do your homework ahead of purchasing!
