Pick from our selection of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your taste.
While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and also superb washing results.
Just about all of our quilts are large enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's dimensions is different. You'll find we post the quilt's measurements as well as the estimated drop for you to compare to the size you want. Please do your research before buying!
Yes, our quilts are certainly washable in a washing machine! We recommend complying with these standards for ideal handling results:

For the initial washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt along with the laundry detergent. This natural remedy stops hemorrhage as well as aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is typically made use of to define crafts created by a craftsman instead of a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is unique due to the fact that it is not mass-produced. Nonetheless, not all the sewing in a handcrafted quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses utilize various devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating knife as well as stitch them together on the sewing machine. The quilter deals with just thimble, string, and needle to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also talent to develop an item distinctly for you.
