Though the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and excellent washing outcomes.
Just about all of our quilts are sizable enough to take care of the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's dimensions varies. You'll find we post the quilt's dimensions as well as the determined drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are looking for. Please do your measuring before purchasing!
Are our quilts washable?
Yes, these quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We suggest complying with these standards for best results:
- Machine wash with only cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use light laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This natural home remedy avoids hemorrhage and also aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is frequently used to define crafts created by an artisan rather than a factory. Each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind due to the fact that it is not mass-produced. Not all the sewing in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical tools to create his workmanship, our seamstresses make use of different devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating knife and also sew them together on the stitching machine. The quilter collaborates with only thimble, needle, as well as thread to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and talent to develop a thing uniquely for you.
