Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
Every step of the quilt-making process calls for a specific woman's know-how. Every one of our women specializes in either piecing or quilting. For that reason, at the very least two ladies are associated with making each quilt. The women that sew the tops with each other specialize in piecing particular quilt patterns. Because each quilter's stitches are different, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each woman to end up being an expert in her field.
