Amish Homemade Quilt Facts
Each and every step of the quilt-making process requires a particular lady's know-how. Every one of our women focuses on either assembling or quilting. At least two ladies are involved in making each quilt. The women that stitch the tops together focus on assembling specific quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches are different, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each woman to come to be a professional in her work.
