While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make sure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt.

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
The term handmade is commonly used to describe crafts produced by an artisan instead of a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is distinct since it is not mass-produced. However, not all the sewing in a hand-crafted quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical devices to develop his workmanship, our seamstresses use various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotary knife as well as stitch them together on the stitching machine. The quilter collaborates with just string, needle, and thimble to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as talent to create a product distinctly for you.
