Broken Star Quilt- King

$795.00

Measures 112″ wide x 118″ 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 an Amish or Mennonite woman.

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.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is typically utilized to describe crafts created by an artisan in contrast to a factory. Due to the fact that it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is distinct. Nevertheless, not all the sewing in a handcrafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical devices to produce his craftsmanship, our seamstresses utilize various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating knife as well as stitch them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter collaborates with only thimble, thread, and also needle to quilt numerous small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and ability to produce a thing distinctly for you.
