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.

Though the pieces of fabric are sewn together by machine to make certain tighter stitching, 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, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and outstanding washing results.

You'll find we list the quilt's measurements alongside the calculated drop for you to compare to the measurements you are looking for. It is important to do your homework ahead of making a purchase!

Did you know?

For hundreds of years, various kinds of tactics have been produced to make it less complicated for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these solutions is called paper piecing, which is regularly taken advantage of to put together the intricate corners of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a distinct paper pattern on top of which the material segments are sewn. The pattern helps the seamstress to successfully stitch the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out evenly. Methods such as this are a fantastic support to our quilt-makers!
