Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is typically used to describe crafts produced by an artisan instead of a factory. Each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind because it is not mass-produced. However, not all the stitching in a hand-crafted quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical tools to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use different devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating knife and also sew them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter works with merely string, thimble, as well as needle to quilt hundreds of little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as ability to develop a thing distinctively for you.
