A quilt is not merely a comfortable bedspread: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters that design our quilts pick top quality vivid fabrics and organize them in a captivating masterpiece. Pick from our stock of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your taste.
While the fabric pieces are stitched 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 guaranties both heat and exceptional washing outcomes.
The majority of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's measurements is different. We designate the quilt's measurements as well as the determined drop for you to compare to the overall size you are looking for. Kindly do your measuring ahead of purchasing!
Are our quilts washable?
Fortunately, our quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We advise complying with these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Machine wash with cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use mild laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry detergent. This natural home remedy protects against hemorrhage as well as aids with protecting the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washing machine stops to lessen 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 most definitely suggest washing.
Did you know?
For hundreds of years, various strategies have been developed to make it simpler for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is paper piecing, which is nearly always employed to assemble the complex points of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it title implies, uses a particular paper pattern onto which the fabric fragments are stitched. The pattern directs the quilter to correctly sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out evenly. Tactics of this sort as this are a wonderful aid to our quilters!
