Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
Each and every step of the quilt-making process requires a particular lady's knowledge. Every one of our women concentrates on either piecing or quilting. Consequently, at the very least two ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The women who stitch the tops with each other specialize in piecing certain quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each woman to become a professional in her work.
