A quilt is not merely a cozy bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists who develop our quilts choose quality colorful fabrics and organize them in an attractive work of art. Select from our selection of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your home design.
Though the pieces of fabric are stitched together 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 heat as well as outstanding washing outcomes.
The majority 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 varies. We post the quilt's dimensions as well as the determined drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are looking for. Kindly do your homework prior to making a purchase!
Can you wash these quilts?
As a matter of fact, our quilts are certainly machine-washable! We advise complying with these guidelines for best results:
- Wash in a washing machine with cold water on delicate 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, add 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry detergent. This natural remedy stops bleed as well as helps to protect the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washing machine finishes to minimize wrinkles as well as color-bleeding.
- Never put a quilt into the dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we certainly recommend washing.
