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.

A quilt is not just a comfortable bed covering: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists who make our quilts select high quality vibrant materials and organize them into a distinct work of art. Choose from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your home design.

Although the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to ensure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and excellent washing outcomes.

Most of our quilts are large enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's dimensions is different. You'll find we designate the quilt's measurements in conjunction with the estimated drop for you to compare to the proportions you are trying to find. Kindly do your measuring ahead of making a purchase!
