Our couture quilts are hand quilted by Amish women in Minnesota. Amish women have been quilting by hand for over a century, and their work is regarded as some of the finest in the world. The Amish lifestyle, with its emphasis on simplicity and a slower pace, lends itself perfectly to quilting. After we mark the quilting lines on the quilt top, we send it along with batting and backing to an individual quilter or household. Occasionally, a mother and daughter will work together on a quilt, but usually each quilt is worked by one woman, which ensures more consistent stitching. The quilt production schedule sometimes takes a back seat to the farm chores (especially in summer), but we believe the quality is well worth the wait. In fact, each quilt can also serve as a beautiful reminder for us to slow down. In our high-pressured, fast-paced, tech-saturated world, the essence of Amish life (with emphasis on tranquility and simplicity), is something we can all aspire to.
