Measures 112″ x 110″

The Ancient Star quilt is handmade by a Pennsylvania Amish woman. The star pattern is of the oldest and most familiar of all the traditional quilt patterns, but great precision is needed to make all the star points meet and lie flat! This Ancient Star king size quilt is sewn in antique colors of navy, green, burgundy, and tan. A dark green border surrounds the quilt. The quilt is all hand-quilted by one lady to insure uniform stitches. On a king bed, this quilt will have approximately 17 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

Over the centuries, an array of methods have been cultivated to make it easier for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is paper piecing, which is popularly applied to assemble the intricate angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name signifies, uses a particular paper pattern on which the material sections are stitched. The pattern leads the needleworker to accurately stitch the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out evenly. Methods of this sort as this are an effective aid to our quilters!
