Broken Star Quilt-King

$845.00

Measures 110″ x 110″ 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 Broken Star quilt with a scalloped border is handmade by a Pennsylvania Amish woman. Since it is quilted by one lady, the stitches are all uniform with 332 yards of hand-quilting. The Broken Star quilt measures generous enough in length and width to eliminate a bed skirt and to provide for a pillow tuck. Four miniature stars adorn the pillow top. On a queen bed, this quilt will have approximately 16 inches of drop 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.

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

For hundreds of years, a variety of techniques have been developed to make it less complicated for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is called paper piecing, which is generally applied to piece the intricate points of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it name suggests, uses a particular paper pattern on which the cloth segments are sewn. The pattern helps the quilter to properly sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out flat. Methodologies such as this are a fantastic support to our quilters!
