A quilt is not only a relaxing blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists who make our quilts choose top-notch colorful fabrics and arrange them into a distinct work of art. Select from our stock of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your home design.
Although the pieces of fabric are sewn with each other by machine to make certain tighter stitching, 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 guaranties both heat and superb washing outcomes.
You will discover our quilts to be reasonably generous in length and width. In fact, the majority of our quilts are sizable enough to take care of the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's sizing is different. You'll find we designate the quilt's dimensions as well as the calculated drop for you to compare to the proportions you need. It is important to do your research prior to buying!
As a matter of fact, our quilts are indeed machine-washable! We advise adhering to these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
- Wash in a washing machine with only cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use mild laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tbsps of salt along with the laundry detergent. This natural remedy stops hemorrhage as well as aids with establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washer quits to reduce wrinkles and color-bleeding.
- Never ever place a quilt into the dryer! Line dry on a breezy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, however we certainly recommend washing.
Did you know?
For hundreds of years, various sorts of procedures have been developed to make it more convenient for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is called paper piecing, which is generally used to put together the complex angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt
. Paper piecing, as it name indicates, uses a particular paper pattern onto which the material fragments are stitched. The pattern leads the needleworker to successfully sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out flat. Techniques of this sort as this are a marvelous support to our quilters!
