A quilt is not merely a comfortable bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The crafters who design our quilts select top quality vibrant materials and arrange them in a captivating masterpiece. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your taste.
Although the pieces of fabric are sewn with each other 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 guaranties both warmth and also superb washing results.
You will find our quilts to be relatively large in length and width. In fact, almost all of our quilts are generous enough to relieve the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's dimensions can be different as well. You'll find we publish the quilt's measurements with the calculated drop for you to compare to the size you want to have. Kindly do your homework ahead of your purchase!
Are our quilts washable?
Fortunately, our quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We advise adhering to these standards for best results:
- Machine wash with cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use mild laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the laundry detergent. This home remedy prevents bleed as well as assists in establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washer stops to reduce wrinkles and also color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt into the clothes dryer! Line completely dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, however we certainly recommend washing.
Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia
Each and every step of the quilt-making process needs a specific woman's expertise. Each of our women specializes in either assembling or quilting. At the very least two ladies are involved in making each quilt. The women who stitch the tops with each other concentrate on assembling specific quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each woman to become a professional in her work.
