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 Homemade Quilt Trivia

Every step of the quilt-making process requires a certain lady's competence. Each of our ladies focuses on either assembling or quilting. At the very least 2 ladies are included in making each quilt. The women who sew the tops with each other focus on assembling particular quilt patterns. Because each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each lady to end up being a specialist in her work.
