Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is frequently utilized to describe crafts produced by a craftsman as opposed to a factory. Each handmade quilt is unique since 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 devices to produce his craftsmanship, our seamstresses make use of different tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary blade knife and also stitch them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter collaborates with merely needle, thimble, and also string to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and ability to produce a product uniquely for you.
