 The following set was done in traditional Amish.

Custom Home Decor Pieces

 

TABLECLOTH

 

Measuring 40" by 40", this custom-styled tablecloth complements the oakwood table beautifully, providing a rustic, country look.  

The antique look comes from sewing and hand-quilting the piece first, and then washing several times.  As a result the fabric shrinks, and this gives it that distinctive 'age' look.

 

Traditional quilting blocks, tablecloths

 

A traditional 'Star Garden'  block design serves as the focal point for the center of the piece. 

This closer view shows some of the densely, detailed hand-stitching which is so typical of the Amish patterns.  Brightly-coloured threads against the deep black background makes for a wonderful and eye-catching contrast.

The tablecloth is machine-pieced.  While the top is entirely hand-quilted.

 

 

 

Quilted table runner

 

 

TABLE RUNNER

Very distinctive, this runner is done in a traditional block pattern knows as "Grape Basket".  Measuring 16" wide and 61" long, this colour-filled piece fits well on a coffee table or in the dining room.

Stitched in solid coloured fabrics, it is a bright and vibrant pieced, framed with a border of randomly placed blocks that match the colours used in the Grape Basket design.  A black binding finishes the runner.  The sharp contrast between the bright and vivid coloured fabrics against the black,  makes for an eye-catching piece, that is yet restful at the same time.  A hallmark of Amish design.

Machine pieced, the runner is entirely hand-quilted.

Amish Block

 

 

A close view shows some of the detailed hand-quilting, which adds so much to this lovely piece.

All items listed here have finished seams for longer wear and durability.

They can be both machine-washed and dried.

 

 

 

 

 

CHAIR PADS

 home decorating, custom made

 

Done in a traditional "Diamond within a Square" pattern, the seat covers made to match the table items above, are stitched using the same solid coloured fabrics. 

In this case, however, they are hand-quilted with black nylon thread - similar to fishing line, the added strength this gives makes for better wear and durability given the constant usage.

Each chair pad is finished off with cording of a contrasting colour.

Reinforced ties at the back corners ensure  the chair covers remain securely in place.

These pieces too, can be machine-washed and dried.   They were designed for regular usage, and are durable enough for daily wear.
