A quilt is not just a cozy bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists who make our quilts select quality vibrant materials and arrange them in a creative masterpiece. Select from our stock of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your style.
While the pieces of fabric are stitched together by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as outstanding washing outcomes.
Just about all of our quilts are sizable enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's dimensions is different. We post the quilt's measurements alongside the determined drop for you to compare to the dimensions you want. It is important to do your research before purchasing!
Can you wash these quilts?
Fortunately, our quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We suggest the following standards for ideal handling results:
- Wash in a washing machine with cold water on delicate 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 along with the laundry detergent. This home remedy protects against hemorrhage and also assists in protecting the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washer stops to lessen wrinkles and also color-bleeding.

- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, however we absolutely suggest washing.
Did you know?
Over the centuries, a variety of procedures have been developed to make it simpler for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these solutions is paper piecing, which is generally used to piece the complicated edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts
. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses an unique paper pattern onto which the material fragments are sewn. The pattern guides the quilter to properly stitch the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out evenly. Strategies such as this are a very good aid to our quilters!
