Tips and Tidbits

What Our Customers Say
Amish-made quilts and wall hangings from Old-Order Amish families of Ethridge, Tennessee: We are quilting specialists striving to offer exceptional examples of the Amish quilting tradition. The majority of our Amish-made quilts exceed the standard count of 6 quilted stitches per inch, with many reaching the expert range of nine to ten per inch. We offer dozens of handmade quilts in nontraditional and traditional Amish patterns, each a fine example of Amish hand quilting. Our quilters are available to create custom quilts to your design, color and size specifications from cutting and piecing your top through hand quilting and binding. Our handcrafted bed quilts make outstanding house warming or wedding gifts, available in sizes from twin through king bed. Your gifts may be personalized by our monogramming service. We also offer Hand Made Baskets including Amish hand crafted ash slatted baskets, and collapsible oak wooden baskets.

 

I am working closely with a community of 155 Old-Order Amish families living in Ethridge, Tennessee. Each quilt is made in our homes. Since they've no electric, quilts are machine pieced on treadle sewing machines and hand quilted. Fabrics are 100% cotton or cotton/poly blends. The quilts are batted in either 100% cotton which gives a flatter, more antique appearance or polyester which lofts to accentuate the hand stitching. All fabrics have been laundered to allow for shrinkage and running of dyes prior to quilting, and may now be safely machine washed and dried.

Whole Cloth

 

In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in whole cloth quilts. Whole cloths are the perfect canvas to showcase a quilter's expertise. As the name implies, a whole cloth quilt consists of a top layer composed of a single piece of fabric, usually white or ecru, but always a solid color. The pattern or design on a whole cloth is achieved entirely of intricate quilting.

Also, we are now offering a line of Amish-made, hardwood quilt hangers designed to evenly distribute your quilt's weight, thus protecting it while it is on display. Our quilt hangers are entirely handmade right down to the wooden knobs.
