Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA. Every homemade quilt is as unique as the family, busy mother or Amish ladies group who uses a needle and thimble to thread stitch on the quilt. Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

Frugality Creating Beauty: How Scrap Quilts Developed

Scrap quilts are called a variety of different names, each a thread connected to quilters years ago who first used this pattern.

Called a “charm” quilt in the late 19th century, young women collected hundreds of different fabrics from their family and friends. Perhaps if they collected 999 different squares, their true love would bring them the thousandth–and their happily-ever-after dream, too. One quilting blogger speculates that collecting these fabrics may have given girls opportunities to ask their love interest for a contribution!

The scrap quilt has also been called a “beggar” quilt, referring to quilters asking each other for contributions to their projects. Trying to put together a bedspread without repeating every fabric, they also called the quilts “odd feller” quilts–every piece was an odd feller. Some families recall their mother repeating one square, however, so that a child sick in bed might be entertained looking for the matching patches.

Still another name scrap quilts went by is the “postage stamp” quilt, so called because quilters would use their tiniest scraps, sometimes no bigger than a postage stamp. Perhaps the original motivation was not wasting the smallest piece (historians recall the scarcity of the Great Depression in this), but it also became a challenge at some point. Quilters would collect thousands of pieces to compete with each other in making stitched masterpieces.

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

Family Farm Handcrafts utilizes nearly 200 Amish as well as Mennonite ladies to produce quilts for our shop.

A quilt is not only a comfortable bed covering: it is also a piece of art. The artisans that develop our quilts select top quality colorful fabrics and organize them into a captivating work of art. Select from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your home design.

Although the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make sure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as excellent washing results.

You will find our quilts to be rather generous in length and width. Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's proportions can be different. We specify the quilt's dimensions in conjunction with the estimated drop for you to compare to the overall size you may need. Kindly do your research prior to purchasing!

Are our quilts washable?

As a matter of fact, these quilts are certainly washable in a washing machine! We suggest the following standards for ideal handling results:

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

For hundreds of years, all sorts of methodologies have been cultivated to make it simpler for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is paper piecing, which is normally applied to compose the complicated points of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it title specifies, uses an unique paper pattern onto which the material pieces are stitched. The pattern leads the seamstress to properly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out evenly. Techniques of this sort as this are a wonderful support to our quilt-makers!
