A quilt is not only a relaxing bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artists who make our quilts pick high quality colorful materials and arrange them into a distinct work of art. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your style.
Although the fabric pieces are sewn with each other by machine to make sure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as outstanding washing results.
You will discover our quilts to be really sizable in length and width. Actuality, almost all of our quilts are large enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, every quilt's measurements is different. You'll find we specify the quilt's measurements in conjunction with the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you want. Definitely do your homework prior to buying!
Are our quilts washable?
Yes, these quilts are certainly machine-washable! We suggest the following standards for ideal handling results:
- Wash in a washing machine with 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 initial washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This home remedy protects against hemorrhage and aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washing machine quits to minimize creases and color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt into the clothes dryer! Line dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we definitely recommend washing.
Did you know?
For hundreds of years, various sorts of solutions have been produced to make it simpler for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these solutions is called paper piecing, which is frequently taken advantage of to piece the challenging edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it name implies, uses a distinct paper pattern on which the fabric pieces are sewn. The pattern helps the seamstress to correctly assemble the pieces together so that the completed top will lay out evenly. Methods of this sort as this are an effective aid to our quilt-makers!
