The Star Wedding Ring quilt is a new twist to a traditional pattern. Gray  and blue stars burst from between the intertwined blue and white rings.

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.

Did you know?

Our creators maintain a truly important assignment. They have the crucial task of settling upon coordinating fabrics from an almost infinite selection of materials fabricated by many different fabric material artists and companies. Each fabric material chosen is integral to the final look of the quilt. The artisan behind this quilt did an admirable job of going with attractive fabric materials that enhance each other and correlate excellently. This is the reason that we call a quilt a piece of artistry!

A quilt is not merely a comfy bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists who develop our quilts choose top quality vibrant fabrics and arrange them in an eye-catching masterpiece. Select from our stock of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your home design.

While the fabric pieces are sewn together by machine to ensure 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 excellent washing results.

You will discover our quilts to be remarkably generous in length and width. Actuality, almost all of our quilts are large enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's measurements is different. We designate the quilt's dimensions in conjunction with the determined drop for you to compare to the measurements you want. Kindly do your measuring before your purchase!

Washing Quilts?

Yes, our quilts are indeed machine-washable! We recommend the following guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Did you know?

The term handmade is commonly utilized to describe crafts produced by an artisan rather than a manufacturing facility. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is special. Not all the sewing in a hand-made quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical devices to create his workmanship, our seamstresses utilize different tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotary knife and also stitch them together on the sewing machine. The quilter functions with just thimble, thread, and also needle to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also skill to develop an item distinctively for you.
