A quilt is not only a cozy bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artisans who develop our quilts choose top quality vivid materials and arrange them into an eye-catching masterpiece. Pick from our selection of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your style.
Although the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to ensure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials 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 heat and excellent washing results.
You will discover our quilts to be remarkably large in length and width. The majority of our quilts are generous enough to do away with the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's measurements is different as well. You'll find we list the quilt's measurements with the determined drop for you to compare to the overall size you need. Please do your research ahead of making a purchase!
Fortunately, these quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We advise the following guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Wash in a washing machine with completely cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use light laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt along with the laundry soap. This home remedy prevents hemorrhage and also helps to protect the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washer stops to lessen creases and also color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt in the dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we definitely recommend washing.
Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia
Each step of the quilt-making process requires a particular lady's know-how. Every one of our ladies focuses on either piecing or quilting. Therefore, at the very least 2 ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The ladies that sew the tops with each other concentrate on assembling particular quilt patterns. Because each quilter's stitches vary, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each lady to become a specialist in her work.
