Shadow Star Quilt-Queen

$720.00

Measures 98″ x 112″ long.

The Shadow Star Quilt is handmade by a Pennsylvania Amish woman. Since it is quilted by one lady, the stitches are all uniform with 222 yards of hand-quilting. The Shadow Star quilt measures generous enough in length and width to eliminate a bed skirt and to provide for a pillow tuck. On a queen bed, this quilt will have approximately 19 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 just a comfortable blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans who design our quilts choose quality vivid materials and organize them into an eye-catching masterpiece. Pick from our stock of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your home design.

Although the fabric pieces are sewn with each other by machine to make sure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those 2 layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as exceptional washing outcomes.

Just about all of our quilts are generous enough to take care of the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's size is different. You'll find we designate the quilt's dimensions with the determined drop for you to compare to the dimensions you want. Definitely do your measuring prior to making a purchase!

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

Over the centuries, numerous methods have been perfected to make it much easier for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is paper piecing, which is often applied to put together the elaborate points of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it name specifies, uses a distinct paper pattern on which the cloth segments are sewn. The pattern directs the needleworker to correctly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out evenly. Methods of this sort as this are a very good help to our quilt-makers!
