Broken Star – King

$845.00

Measures 112″ wide x 115″ long.

The Broken Star design is a large lone star placed inside a curved set of similar diamond-shaped blocks that encircle it and form half-stars. 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! The quilt includes an amazing 310 yards of hand-quilting by Mrs. Yoder. The Broken Star quilt measures generous enough in length to provide for a pillow tuck. Four miniature stars adorn the pillow top. On a king bed, the quilt will hang down about 17 inches 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 just a comfy bed cover: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters that create our quilts choose quality vivid fabrics and arrange them in an appealing masterpiece. Pick from our stock of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your home design.

While the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make sure tighter stitching, 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 two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as excellent washing outcomes.

Most of our quilts are large enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's proportions can be different. You'll find we post the quilt's measurements in addition to the determined drop for you to compare to the size you may need. Kindly do your research before buying!

As a matter of fact, these quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We suggest complying with these guidelines for best results:

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

Over the centuries, many types of solutions have been cultivated to make it more convenient for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is called paper piecing, which is frequently used to assemble the elaborate points of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a particular paper pattern on top of which the fabric fragments are stitched. The pattern helps the needleworker to successfully assemble the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out flat. Methodologies of this sort as this are an excellent support to our quilters!
