Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA. Every homemade quilt is as unique as the family, busy mother or Amish ladies group who uses a needle and thimble to thread stitch on the quilt. Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

A quilt is not only a cozy bed covering: it is also a piece of art. The crafters that create our quilts choose quality vivid materials and organize them into a distinct work of art. Pick from our selection of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best complements your taste.

Though the fabric pieces are stitched together 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 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and exceptional washing results.

You will find our quilts to be rather large in length and width. The majority of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, every quilt's dimensions differs. We designate the quilt's measurements along with the estimated drop for you to compare to the sizing you want to have. It is important to do your measuring prior to buying!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

For hundreds of years, a lot of solutions have been developed to make it much simpler for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these methods is called paper piecing, which is usually used to assemble the complex edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it title designates, uses a particular paper pattern onto which the material sections are sewn. The pattern guides the needleworker to correctly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out evenly. Tactics such as this are a wonderful aid to our quilt-makers!
