Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
Each step of the quilt-making process calls for a specific woman's knowledge. Each of our ladies concentrates on either assembling or quilting. At least two ladies are involved in making each quilt. The women that sew the tops with each other focus on piecing particular quilt patterns. Because each quilter's stitches differ, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each lady to come to be a specialist in her field.
