Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia
Each and every step of the quilt-making process requires a particular lady's knowledge. Every one of our women concentrates on either piecing or quilting. Consequently, at the very least two ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The women who stitch the tops with each other focus on assembling certain quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system allows each lady to become a professional in her work.
