Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is typically utilized to define crafts created by a craftsman instead of a manufacturing facility. Since it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind. However, not all the sewing in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical devices to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotary blade knife and also stitch them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter functions with only thimble, string, and needle to quilt numerous small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and ability to create a thing distinctly for you.
