Different Types of Amish Quilts You Can Own (part 2)
If you don't want to invest in a full-sized Amish quilt, since they can be quite pricey, then you might want to purchase an Amish style lap quilt. Lap quilts are, as the name suggests, meant to be used on the lap to keep warm while sitting in a chair or rocker. They're much smaller than the Amish quilts that are made for bedding, but just as beautiful in design and workmanship. Buying these smaller lap quilts is a great way to get into the hobby of collecting Amish quilts without breaking the bank.
You might also want to purchase an Amish quilt for the sole purpose of hanging it on the wall as an art piece. This is a great and affordable way to enjoy the beauty of a handmade Amish quilt without the risks that come with using it for actual bedding. People with small children or pets may be wary of buying an authentic Amish quilt out of fear of it being damaged while on the bed. So, buying an Amish quilt that is meant to hang on the wall is a great option for those who still love the style of the Amish quilt, but don't want to risk displaying it on a bed. Amish quilt wall hangings are usually square or rectangular in shape and are much smaller than those made to fit a bed. Wall hanging quilts often come with hanging tabs or a channel at the top of the quilt that can be hung on a curtain rod and placed on the wall like a piece of fine art. Of course, you can also hang any size Amish quilt on the wall by attaching tabs to the top on it or using a specially made quilt hanger. This is a good option for people who want to display their larger Amish quilts rather than storing them away in a closet.
As you can see, Amish quilts come in so many sizes, shapes, and styles that you just might end up buying more than just one. Owning an Amish quilt is a wonderful way to start a family tradition and can make a wonderful gift for so many different occasions. These are truly unique crafts that will be treasured by you and your family for many, many years to come.
