Amish Spirit presents handmade Amish Quilts
Amish Spirit’s Amish handmade and hand quilted patchwork, pieced, wedding ring, applique, log cabin, star and wholecloth quilts for sale are made by the women of an Old Order Amish community in rural Pennsylvania. Each quilt is handmade by one woman. The uniformity and consistency of one artist’s hand quilting gives each quilt its own unique resonance. As for fabrics, only quilt grade dye fast cottons are used.
A handmade Amish quilt can take 3 to 4 months (500 to 700 hours) to complete. When considering cost and value, remember that a productive quilter can only make 5 to 6 quilts per year. Furthermore, Amish quilts are made to be heirlooms, passed along from one generation to the next.
Generally speaking, a quilt consists of three parts: a quilt top, the batting and the quilt backing. Quilt tops consist of hundreds (and in some cases, thousands) of sewn-together small pieces of fabric that create the desired quilt pattern. In the case of an Amish quilt, the quilt top, batting and quilt back are fused together by the celebrated hand quilting of the Amish. The finished product is a lightweight warm cover renowned for its beauty. Each quilt is unique in this world.
Everyone here at Amish Spirit enjoys making these quilts available to the public. We admire and stand behind each of them. As you browse our quilts for sale, what is less apparent is the quilters’ story. The Amish women of this community cannot work outside their homes. Quilt making offers these women, especially the widows, a way to increased self esteem and independence. A way to an income.
Our Amish quilts for sale can be viewed via the above tab “Quilts for Sale.” Our Amish Baby quilts can be viewed via the above tab “Infant Quilts.” We also sell Amish hand woven rugs, hot plates and placemats. You can see them via the “Other Items” tab above.

New Historic Quilts from Amish Spirit
We’ve purchased quilt tops made long ago that were never made into finished quilts. A quilt top is like a sheet made out of sewn-together pieces of fabric. All selected tops are in perfect condition.
Our Amish friends are taking quilt tops and turning them into finished quilts. They’ve added quilt batting, hand quilted the top to a new quilt back and bound each quilt by hand. The result is a new quilt of which only one exists. From the South, New England and the Midwest, some of our historic quilt tops were made 100 or more years ago and of fabrics that no longer exist. Experts can tell us a great day but not the whole story. We do know that you’ll never see another quilt like our historic, Amish finished, quilts. These quilts are brand new – just made by the worlds’ best quilt makers: the Amish.
