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.

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

The term handmade is typically used to describe crafts produced by a craftsman in contrast to a factory. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is special. Not all the stitching in a hand-made quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to produce his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use different devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotary knife and also sew them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter collaborates with merely string, thimble, and also needle to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also ability to produce an item distinctly for you.

A quilt is not merely a comfy bed covering: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists who design our quilts pick quality vibrant materials and arrange them into an appealing masterpiece. Pick from our stock of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your taste.

Although the pieces of fabric 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 in between those 2 layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and also excellent washing results.

Most of our quilts are sizable enough to eliminate the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's sizing varies. We post the quilt's measurements along with the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you want. Definitely do your research ahead of purchasing!

Washing Quilts?

As a matter of fact, these quilts are indeed machine-washable! We suggest the following guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

For hundreds of years, all sorts of solutions have been produced to make it simpler for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is named paper piecing, which is usually used to assemble the complicated edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title indicates, uses a particular paper pattern onto which the material segments are sewn. The pattern leads the needleworker to properly sew the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out evenly. Tactics such as this are a very good support to our quilters!
