Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA. Every homemade quilt is as unique as the family, busy mother or Amish ladies group who uses a needle and thimble to thread stitch on the quilt. Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

Frugality Creating Beauty: How Scrap Quilts Developed

Scrap quilts are called a variety of different names, each a thread connected to quilters years ago who first used this pattern.

Called a “charm” quilt in the late 19th century, young women collected hundreds of different fabrics from their family and friends. Perhaps if they collected 999 different squares, their true love would bring them the thousandth–and their happily-ever-after dream, too. One quilting blogger speculates that collecting these fabrics may have given girls opportunities to ask their love interest for a contribution!

The scrap quilt has also been called a “beggar” quilt, referring to quilters asking each other for contributions to their projects. Trying to put together a bedspread without repeating every fabric, they also called the quilts “odd feller” quilts–every piece was an odd feller. Some families recall their mother repeating one square, however, so that a child sick in bed might be entertained looking for the matching patches.

Still another name scrap quilts went by is the “postage stamp” quilt, so called because quilters would use their tiniest scraps, sometimes no bigger than a postage stamp. Perhaps the original motivation was not wasting the smallest piece (historians recall the scarcity of the Great Depression in this), but it also became a challenge at some point. Quilters would collect thousands of pieces to compete with each other in making stitched masterpieces.

Every step of the quilt-making process requires a certain lady's knowledge. Each of our ladies specializes in either piecing or quilting. At least 2 ladies are included in making each quilt. The ladies who stitch the tops together concentrate on assembling certain quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to come to be a professional in her field.

A quilt is not just a comfy bed covering: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans who create our quilts pick quality vivid materials and organize them in an attractive work of art. Choose from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your taste.

Although the pieces of fabric are stitched with each other by machine to ensure tighter sewing, 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 warranties both heat as well as outstanding washing results.

Most of our quilts are sizable enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's measurements varies.
