These machine-washable quilts are created from either a traditional or custom design in a smoke-free, pet-free home by Sisters Betty Suther and Jean Ann Walton.

Both beautiful and versatile, they are hand assembled from home-cut pieces that are machine sewn from all new cotton fabric.

Each quilt is reversible, and designed with a fabric specially chosen to make the back as beautiful as the top. Professionally quilted edge-to-edge in custom or traditional patterns, these heirloom quality quilts are durable and can withstand steady use and laundering on gentle cycle.

Each quilt pattern is enhanced with its own unique quilting motif, sewn in either coordinating or contrasting thread. Tailored specifically to each quilt, the quilting brings out the beauty of both the top and the back. Each quilt has straight edges and square corners.

Separate half-inch binding finishes the four sides of each quilt, with home cut pieces of the same fabric used in the quilt blocks.

Some of the quilts are inscribed with the names of the seamstress and quilter who made them on an attached label on a lower corner block. An inscription can be added at a customer’s request.

All of these quilts are available at Manna House of Prayer, 323 E. 5th St., Concordia, Kansas, 66901. We do ship. Please contact us about the quilt of your choice so we can arrange for safe pick-up or shipping to your destination. And follow our page as additional quilts are added.
