A quilt is not merely a relaxing bed cover: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters who design our quilts pick top quality vibrant fabrics and organize them into an attractive work of art. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best complements your style.
While the pieces of fabric are sewn with each other 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 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also exceptional washing outcomes.
Most of our quilts are sizable enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's dimensions can be different. We publish the quilt's dimensions together with the calculated drop for you to compare to the measurements you want to have. Kindly do your homework prior to your purchase!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is frequently utilized to describe crafts created by an artisan rather than a manufacturing facility. Due to the fact that it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is unique. Not all the stitching in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical devices to develop his craftsmanship, our seamstresses utilize different tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating blade knife and also stitch them together on the sewing machine. The quilter deals with merely thimble, string, and needle to quilt numerous small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also skill to produce an item uniquely for you.
