Though the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to ensure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as excellent washing results.
The majority of our quilts are sizable enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's dimensions is different. We publish the quilt's dimensions together with the estimated drop for you to compare to the measurements you are trying to find. Definitely do your measuring ahead of your purchase!
As a matter of fact, our quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We recommend complying with these standards for best results:
- Wash in a washing machine with completely cold water on delicate cycle.
- Use mild laundry detergent, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This home remedy avoids hemorrhage and helps to protect the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washer quits to reduce creases as well as color-bleeding.

Each and every step of the quilt-making process requires a certain lady's competence. Every one of our women focuses on either piecing or quilting. At least two ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The ladies that stitch the tops with each other focus on piecing particular quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system allows each woman to become a specialist in her field.
