Double Wedding Ring Amish Quilt pattern

Double Wedding Ring Amish Quilt

Amish handmade and hand quilted pieced and appliqued quilts. Patchwork, wedding ring, applique, log cabin, star and wholecloth quilts are made by master quilts 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. All quilts are made using dye fast quilt grade cotton fabric.

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 heirlooms to be passed along from one generation to the next.

Handmade Lone Star Amish Quilt for sale

Lone Star Amish Quilt

A quilt consists of the 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 Amish hand quilting. The finished product is a lightweight warm cover renowned for its beauty.  Each is an absolutely unique quilt.

As you browse our quilts for sale, what is less apparent are the quilters’ stories.  The Amish women of this community do not work outside their homes.  Quilt making offers these women, especially widows, a way to increase self esteem and independence.
