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 masterpiece of artwork. The crafters who create our quilts choose quality vivid fabrics and arrange them into an eye-catching masterpiece. Choose from our stock of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your taste.

Though the pieces of fabric are stitched with each other by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and superb washing outcomes.

Most of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's measurements varies. We publish the quilt's dimensions as well as the determined drop for you to compare to the measurements you may need. It is important to do your homework ahead of purchasing!

Are our quilts washable?

Fortunately, our quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We recommend adhering to these guidelines for best results:

Did you know?

Over the centuries, various kinds of methodologies have been developed to make it much easier for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these solutions is named paper piecing, which is typically adopted to assemble the complex edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it title indicates, uses a special paper pattern on top of which the cloth sections are sewn. The pattern helps the needleworker to correctly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out evenly. Solutions such as this are a great help to our quilt-makers!
