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.

Did you know?

Over the centuries, many types of procedures have been cultivated to make it much simpler for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is paper piecing, which is routinely employed to assemble the elaborate points of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name signifies, uses a distinct paper pattern onto which the material segments are stitched. The pattern guides the quilter to correctly stitch the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out flat. Tactics such as this are a marvelous aid to our quilt-makers!
