Ancient Star – king

$765.00

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.

A quilt is not merely a comfortable bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters who develop our quilts choose top quality colorful materials and arrange them in a creative masterpiece.

Although the pieces of fabric are stitched with each other by machine to ensure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and exceptional washing results.

The majority of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's dimensions can be different. We publish the quilt's measurements alongside the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you need. It is important to do your research before purchasing!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

The term handmade is generally made use of to define crafts produced by an artisan as opposed to a manufacturing facility. Due to the fact that it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is distinct. Nonetheless, not all the stitching in a hand-crafted quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical tools to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses make use of various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating knife and also stitch them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter functions with only needle, thimble, and also string to quilt thousands of little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and talent to produce an item distinctly for you.
