Amish Quilts | Mariner Compass Quilt


The Mariner Compass one of the oldest known quilt patterns dating back to early 1700s was inspired by early coastal communities where nautical thoughts of a windrose design of an early compass on early maritime maps used by ship captains to navigate their way home through the fog and stormy weather to find a welcoming clean dry and warm bed. Today the windrose design is still used on the faces of ornate modern-day magnetic compasses.

The points on a Mariner Compass quilt will have the traditional 16 or 32 points. Our Amish Mariner Compass quilt will have 32 points that visually seem to radiate out from the center as the wind would have rippled in those early nautical periods. They are more difficult to make reflecting on the Amish love of quilt making.

The quilt blocks are sewn together. Once all the quilt blocks are attached, they are stretched over a large rack and the actual quilting process is hand-stitched. The hand-stitched quality and the time it takes to complete is what sets these quilts apart from any other factory-made quilt. There are many imported quilts being sold in the U.S. but a close look and counting the stitches will quickly determine hand sewn or machine sewn. Therefore, Amish made quilts are known for their heirloom quality.

Please select the size and the main color theme you are wanting, such as blues, reds, maroon, burgundy, greens, etc. The Amish lady who makes these will use her judgment and knowledge to hand-select contrasting colors to go with your main theme. Each quilt is unique and may not have the same fabric patterns as the next.  If you’re not comfortable and have plenty of time, we will let her select the colors she plans to use and send them to you in small swatches.

Our pricing and size selection begins with the full-size quilt, as you click on the various sizes the incremental additional cost will add (+) to the full-size quilt price

These are custom quilts and will not be able to be returned. We will work with you to have every opportunity to be sure the quilt matches your vision.  Again, no two quilts will have the same material patterns. If you must have a perfect match, we ask that you choose the option to send in your own fabrics.
