Ancient Star Quilt – King

$765.00

The Ancient Star Quilt is handmade by a Pennsylvania Amish woman. The star pattern is one 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! The quilt is all hand-quilted by one lady to insure uniform stitches and is initialed and dated. On a king bed, this quilt will have approximately 18.5 inches of drop.

Measures 115″ wide x 116″ long.

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 cozy blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters that make our quilts select quality colorful materials and arrange them into an appealing work of art. Choose from our selection of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your home design.

Although the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and outstanding washing results.

Most of our quilts are large enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's dimensions varies. We specify the quilt's dimensions in conjunction with the determined drop for you to compare to the size you want to have. Kindly do your homework prior to buying!

Are our quilts washable?

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

For hundreds of years, many types of solutions have been developed to make it much easier for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these solutions is called paper piecing, which is popularly utilized to put together the complicated angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name suggests, uses a particular paper pattern onto which the material fragments are stitched. The pattern guides the seamstress to correctly sew the pieces together so that the completed top will lay out evenly. Methodologies of this sort as this are a marvelous support to our quilters!
