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.

Although the fabric pieces are sewn with each other by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and exceptional washing outcomes.

Just about all of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's dimensions can be different. We post the quilt's dimensions in addition to the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are trying to find. Kindly do your measuring prior to making a purchase!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

The term handmade is frequently utilized to define crafts created by a craftsman instead of a factory. Since it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is special. Nonetheless, not all the stitching in a hand-made quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical devices to develop his workmanship, our seamstresses use different tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating knife and sew them together on the stitching machine. The quilter collaborates with merely needle, thimble, as well as thread to quilt numerous tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as talent to create an item uniquely for you.
