Broken Star Quilt-Queen

Sale!

$745.00 $595.00

Measures 96″ wide 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 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 330 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 18 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.

A quilt is not merely a relaxing bedspread: it is also a piece of art. The artisans that make our quilts pick top quality vivid fabrics and organize them into an attractive work of art. Pick from our stock of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your style.

Though the fabric pieces are sewn 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 two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as superb washing outcomes.

The majority of our quilts are sizable enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's measurements can be different. We specify the quilt's measurements with the estimated drop for you to compare to the overall size you may need. It is important to do your measuring before purchasing!

Can you wash these quilts?

Fortunately, our quilts are certainly washable in a washing machine! We recommend the following guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

Over the centuries, many different tactics have been produced to make it easier for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is named paper piecing, which is ordinarily used to compose the challenging points of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name specifies, uses an unique paper pattern on top of which the material cuts are stitched. The pattern leads the seamstress to correctly assemble the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out evenly. Solutions of this sort as this are an excellent support to our quilt-makers!
