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.

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

Over the centuries, all sorts of methods have been developed to make it much easier for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is paper piecing, which is ordinarily taken advantage of to assemble the complex corners of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name designates, uses a special paper pattern on top of which the cloth segments are stitched. The pattern helps the quilter to correctly sew the pieces together so that the completed top will lay out flat. Tactics of this sort as this are a fantastic support to our quilt-makers!
