A quilt is not only a comfortable blanket: it is also a piece of art. The crafters that create our quilts select top-notch colorful fabrics and arrange them into an eye-catching masterpiece. Select from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your home design.
While the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and also superb washing results.
Just about all of our quilts are sizable enough to relieve the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's overall size can be different. We designate the quilt's measurements as well as the estimated drop for you to compare to the overall size you may need. Kindly do your measuring ahead of making a purchase!
Are our quilts washable?
Yes, these quilts are indeed machine-washable! We advise complying with these guidelines for best results:
- Wash in a washing machine with only cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use mild laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This natural remedy stops bleed and assists in protecting the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washer quits to decrease creases and color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt into the clothes dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we certainly recommend washing.
