Embroidered Quilts

Embroidered quilts are amazing and rare. Think about the time to stitch such a huge design and then there is still all the quilting stitching! Few women here are willing to take on such a task for love or money, but a couple will. But when they are made they are striking — the designs can be bold, but embroidery makes the result soft. The look is often similar to a tapistry. We are very careful to show and offer only top quality very well made quilts.

Occasionally, some of the quilts shown here are marked indicating that they are “available now” for shipment –we are usually able to ship quilts so marked no later than the next business day. Other quilts shown have been sold, but we can arrange for a similar quilt to be custom made.

Take your time looking through this little gallery, while there are only a few quilts there is still a lot to see. We try to show respect for the quilts and the quilters by properly showing them. If you have questions about any quilt, please call or write to us.

  • All-quilted quilts are prized for their cool elegance and their workmanship. A quilt for today and for generations to come. This quilt with its traditional cream white cotton muslin was made by one of Hannah’s best quilters. Note the spectacular stitching. The Pineapple design and thin batting (that shows off the fine quilting) are very traditional. A quilt that takes months to make and is rarely available.
  • A delightful collection of cross-stitched hearts and flowers! We love these VERY hard to find cross-stitch quilts. They have softness that can not be matched with printed fabrics. Note all the cross stitching that is precise and uniform. Excellent stitching! 5 purple and green Cross Stitch patches with 6 coordinating Log Cabin squares along with a pillow throw. Very well made in Lancaster by an Amish woman.

  • All quilted quilts with abundant quilting such as this one are the most treasured quilts. With fine stitching and more than four times the quilting found on a typical well-made quilt, these quilts take an extraordinary amount of time to make and consequently few are made. This one was made by a very experienced local Amish quilter. Covered with fine cotton cream white muslin. A quilt that you and your great-grandchildren will cherish!
