A quilt is not merely a comfortable bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists that design our quilts pick quality colorful fabrics and arrange them into an eye-catching work of art. Choose from our selection of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your taste.
Although the fabric pieces are stitched with each other by machine to make sure 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 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as exceptional washing results.
You will discover our quilts to be relatively generous in length and width. Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to minimize the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each and every quilt's sizing varies. You'll find we post the quilt's measurements together with the determined drop for you to compare to the measurements you are trying to find. Please do your homework prior to purchasing!
Fortunately, these quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We suggest complying with these standards for ideal handling results:
- Wash in a washing machine with only cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the very first washing, include 1/2 cup vinegar as well as 2 tablespoons of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This natural home remedy prevents bleed as well as assists in establishing the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt immediately after the washer stops to minimize creases and color-bleeding.
- Never ever place a quilt in the clothes dryer! Line dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we absolutely suggest washing.
Amish Handmade Quilt Facts
Every step of the quilt-making process calls for a certain woman's proficiency. Each of our ladies concentrates on either piecing or quilting. At least 2 ladies are involved in making each quilt. The women that stitch the tops together specialize in piecing particular quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system allows each lady to become a professional in her work.
