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 merely a cozy bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The crafters that make our quilts choose top-notch colorful materials and arrange them into an appealing work of art. Choose from our stock of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your taste.

Though the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also exceptional washing results.

You will discover our quilts to be reasonably sizable in length and width. In fact, nearly all of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's sizing varies as well. We post the quilt's measurements along with the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you want. Please do your measuring prior to purchasing!

Are our quilts washable?

Yes, our quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We advise the following guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
