Broken Star Quilt – King

$845.00

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 324 yards of careful hand-quilting done by only one Amish or Mennonite woman to ensure even stitches.

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 18 inches per side.

Measures 114″ wide x 115″ long.

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

Each and every step of the quilt-making process calls for a specific woman's proficiency. Each of our ladies concentrates on either assembling or quilting. Consequently, at the very least two ladies are included in making each quilt. The women who sew the tops with each other focus on piecing specific quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches differ, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each lady to end up being a professional in her field.
