A quilt is not only a relaxing bed cover: it is also a piece of art. The artisans that develop our quilts pick top quality vivid materials and organize them into a distinct work of art. Pick from our selection of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your home design.
Although the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and also outstanding washing results.
You will find our quilts to be rather generous in length and width. As a matter of fact, most of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each and every quilt's measurements is different. We designate the quilt's dimensions along with the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are trying to find. It is important to do your homework before making a purchase!
As a matter of fact, our quilts are certainly machine-washable! We recommend complying with these guidelines for ideal handling results:
- Machine wash with cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use light laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This natural remedy stops hemorrhage and helps to establish the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washing machine quits to decrease creases as well as color-bleeding.
- Never put a quilt into the clothes dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, however we definitely recommend washing.
Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is frequently used to describe crafts produced by an artisan as opposed to a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind due to the fact that it is not mass-produced. Not all the sewing in a handcrafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to develop his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary blade knife and also sew them together on the stitching machine. The quilter collaborates with only thimble, thread, as well as needle to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as skill to develop a thing uniquely for you.
