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.

Did you know?

Over the centuries, many types of solutions have been produced to make it much simpler for quilters to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is called paper piecing, which is very often used to assemble the challenging edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title signifies, uses an unique paper pattern on top of which the material fragments are sewn. The pattern directs the quilter to perfectly assemble the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out flat. Procedures of this sort as this are a fabulous aid to our quilt-makers!
