A quilt is not only a cozy bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists who develop our quilts pick top-notch colorful fabrics and organize them into an attractive work of art. Choose from our stock of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best complements your taste.
Although the pieces of fabric are stitched together by machine to guarantee 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 two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as superb washing results.
You will discover our quilts to be rather generous in length and width. Actuality, almost all of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's sizing is different as well. We designate the quilt's dimensions in conjunction with the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are trying to find. Definitely do your measuring prior to making a purchase!
Are our quilts washable?
As a matter of fact, our quilts are certainly washable in a washing machine! We advise complying with these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Wash in a washing machine with cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use only light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the laundry detergent. This natural home remedy protects against bleed and also aids with protecting the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt as soon as the washer finishes to minimize wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never place a quilt into the dryer! Line completely dry on a windy day.
- Quilts could be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we absolutely recommend washing.
Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia
For hundreds of years, many types of solutions have been developed to make it less complicated for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these methods is paper piecing, which is generally taken advantage of to assemble the complex angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a specific paper pattern onto which the material cuts are sewn. The pattern directs the seamstress to successfully stitch the pieces together so that the completed top will lay out evenly. Procedures such as this are a marvelous aid to our quilters!
