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 only a cozy bed covering: it is also a piece of art. The artists who develop our quilts pick high quality colorful materials and arrange them into an appealing work of art. Pick from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your home design.

Though the fabric pieces are stitched together by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and superb washing outcomes.

Just about all of our quilts are large enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's proportions differs. We designate the quilt's dimensions with the estimated drop for you to compare to the measurements you want to have. Please do your measuring ahead of making a purchase!

Are our quilts washable?

Yes, these quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We recommend complying with these standards for ideal handling results:

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

Over the centuries, many types of strategies have been developed to make it less complicated for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is named paper piecing, which is very often employed to put together the elaborate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it name signifies, uses a distinct paper pattern on which the material sections are stitched. The pattern directs the quilter to perfectly assemble the pieces together so that the completed top will lay out evenly. Methods such as this are a wonderful aid to our quilt-makers!
