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 relaxing bed cover: it is also a piece of art. The artists that make our quilts choose top-notch colorful fabrics and organize them in an appealing work of art. Select from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your style.

Though the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, 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 guaranties both warmth and also exceptional washing outcomes.

Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's sizing can be different. You'll find we designate the quilt's dimensions with the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you need. Kindly do your research before purchasing!

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is frequently used to describe crafts produced by a craftsman as opposed to a factory. Each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind since it is not mass-produced. However, not all the sewing in a hand-crafted quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical tools to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses make use of different devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating knife as well as sew them together on the stitching machine. The quilter functions with only needle, thimble, and also string to quilt numerous tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as talent to create an item uniquely for you.
