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.

A quilt is not just a comfortable bed covering: it is also a piece of art. The crafters that develop our quilts choose top quality vivid materials and arrange them in an eye-catching masterpiece. Pick from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your taste.

Though the fabric pieces are stitched together by machine to ensure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and excellent washing outcomes.

Just about all of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's overall size differs. We list the quilt's measurements in addition to the estimated drop for you to compare to the size you are trying to find. Please do your homework ahead of your purchase!

Are our quilts washable?

As a matter of fact, our quilts are indeed machine-washable! We advise the following guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Did you know?

Over the centuries, quite a number of solutions have been produced to make it much easier for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these solutions is called paper piecing, which is often taken advantage of to compose the intricate points of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name indicates, uses a particular paper pattern on top of which the cloth sections are stitched. The pattern guides the quilter to successfully stitch the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out flat. Methodologies of this sort as this are a fabulous aid to our quilt-makers!
