A quilt is not just a cozy blanket: it is also a piece of art. The artisans who make our quilts choose top quality vibrant materials and arrange them into an eye-catching masterpiece. Select from our selection of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your home design.
Although the pieces of fabric are sewn together by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and exceptional washing outcomes.
Almost all of our quilts are large enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's overall size differs. We specify the quilt's dimensions along with the determined drop for you to compare to the dimensions you need. Definitely do your homework ahead of your purchase!
Are our quilts washable?
As a matter of fact, our quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We suggest the following standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Machine wash with completely cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the initial washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt along with the laundry soap. This natural home remedy protects against hemorrhage as well as aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washing machine finishes to reduce wrinkles as well as color-bleeding.
- Never ever put a quilt into the clothes dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we certainly recommend washing.
Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia
Over the centuries, a variety of techniques have been produced to make it easier for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is called paper piecing, which is ordinarily adopted to compose the complicated angles of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it title specifies, uses a particular paper pattern on which the material pieces are stitched. The pattern guides the needleworker to correctly assemble the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out flat. Procedures of this sort as this are a tremendous support to our quilters!
