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 comfy bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters that develop our quilts choose top-notch vivid fabrics and organize them in an eye-catching masterpiece. Select from our stock of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your home design.

While the pieces of fabric are stitched with each other by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth as well as outstanding washing outcomes.

Almost all of our quilts are sizable enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's measurements is different. You'll find we post the quilt's measurements together with the estimated drop for you to compare to the overall size you want. Definitely do your measuring prior to making a purchase!

Are our quilts washable?

As a matter of fact, our quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We advise adhering to these standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

For hundreds of years, an array of tactics have been produced to make it less complicated for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is paper piecing, which is often times applied to compose the intricate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name suggests, uses a specific paper pattern on which the material segments are stitched. The pattern helps the quilter to accurately assemble the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out flat. Methods such as this are an excellent help to our quilters!
