A quilt is not just a cozy bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artists that develop our quilts select quality vibrant fabrics and arrange them into a distinct masterpiece. Choose from our selection of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best complements your style.
Though the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make sure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and exceptional washing outcomes.
The majority of our quilts are sizable enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's dimensions can be different. You'll find we specify the quilt's measurements in conjunction with the determined drop for you to compare to the size you want to have. Definitely do your measuring prior to buying!
Can you wash these quilts?
As a matter of fact, these quilts are certainly machine-washable! We advise complying with these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Wash in a washing machine with completely cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use only 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 as well as 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry soap. This natural remedy prevents bleed and also helps to establish the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washer quits to reduce wrinkles as well as color-bleeding.

Did you know?
The term handmade is generally made use of to describe crafts produced by a craftsman rather than a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is distinct because it is not mass-produced. Not all the stitching in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical tools to develop his workmanship, our seamstresses use various devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary blade knife and also sew them together on the sewing machine. The quilter collaborates with just thread, thimble, and needle to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and talent to produce a thing distinctively for you.
