The Eight-Point Star quilt is an intricate star pattern that traditionally allowed a woman to showcase her needlework skills. Precision is extremely important in piecing stars for a neat finished product! Out of the hundreds of star patterns, one of most popular is the Eight-Point Star. The Eight-Point Star quilt has a scalloped border all the way around and is very neatly hand-quilted by one Amish lady, which insures uniform stitches in 236 yards of hand-quilting. On a queen sized bed, this quilt will allow 20 inches of drop.

Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA. Every homemade quilt is as unique as the family, busy mother or Amish ladies group who uses a needle and thimble to thread stitch on the quilt. Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is frequently made use of to define crafts produced by a craftsman in contrast to a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind due to the fact that it is not mass-produced. However, not all the sewing in a hand-made quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to produce his craftsmanship, our seamstresses make use of different devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotary blade knife and also stitch them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter deals with just thimble, thread, as well as needle to quilt numerous little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as ability to develop an item uniquely for you.
