Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA.

Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

For hundreds of years, various sorts of strategies have been produced to make it much easier for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these solutions is paper piecing, which is often times taken advantage of to put together the elaborate angles of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title specifies, uses a special paper pattern on top of which the cloth fragments are sewn. The pattern directs the seamstress to properly stitch the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out evenly. Tactics of this sort as this are a fabulous help to our quilt-makers!
