Ancient Star – Queen

$775.00

Measures 96″ x 108″

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. The quilt is hand-quilted with love by one Pennsylvania lady to insure uniform stitches. On a queen-size bed, this quilt will have approximately 18 inches of drop per side.

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 relaxing bed cover: it is also a piece of art. The artisans who design our quilts select top quality vibrant materials and organize them in an appealing work of art. Choose from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your taste.

While the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as superb washing results.

You will find our quilts to be relatively large in length and width. In fact, most of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's size can be different as well. You'll find we post the quilt's measurements in addition to the calculated drop for you to compare to the size you are trying to find. Please do your research before making a purchase!

Can you wash these quilts?

As a matter of fact, these quilts are indeed machine-washable! We recommend adhering to these standards for ideal handling results:

Did you know?

Every step of the quilt-making process calls for a specific lady's competence. Every one of our women specializes in either piecing or quilting. As a result, at the very least two ladies are included in making each quilt. The women that stitch the tops with each other focus on assembling certain quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each lady to end up being a professional in her field.
