Broken Star Quilt-King

Sale!

$845.00 $745.00

Measures 110″ x 114″ 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 382 yards of hand-quilting by Mrs. Weaver. 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 16 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.

A quilt is not just a cozy bed cover: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists who create our quilts pick high quality colorful fabrics and organize them into an attractive masterpiece. Pick from our selection of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your home design.

While the pieces of fabric are stitched with each other 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, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as exceptional washing outcomes.

The majority of our quilts are sizable enough to eliminate the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's measurements differs. You'll find we designate the quilt's measurements in conjunction with the calculated drop for you to compare to the measurements you want to have. Kindly do your measuring prior to buying!

Can you wash these quilts?

Yes, our quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We recommend the following standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

For hundreds of years, an array of strategies have been cultivated to make it less complicated for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these strategies is called paper piecing, which is generally utilized to combine the complicated corners of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it title indicates, uses an unique paper pattern onto which the material segments are stitched. The pattern directs the needleworker to properly sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out flat. Strategies of this sort as this are a wonderful help to our quilt-makers!
