The Eight-Point Star quilt is an intricate star pattern that traditionally allowed a woman to showcase her needlework skills. Precision is extremely important in piecing stars for a neat finished product! Out of the hundreds of star patterns, one of most popular is the Eight-Point Star. It includes a scalloped black border and 302 yards of hand quilting. On a queen bed, this quilt will have 21 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.

While the fabric pieces are sewn together by machine to ensure 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, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and superb washing results.

Most of our quilts are generous enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's size differs. You'll find we list the quilt's dimensions with the estimated drop for you to compare to the proportions you want to have. Please do your research prior to making a purchase!

Did you know?

For hundreds of years, various tactics have been perfected to make it much simpler for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these methods is paper piecing, which is commonly utilized to put together the complicated angles of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title indicates, uses an unique paper pattern on top of which the fabric cuts are sewn. The pattern directs the needleworker to perfectly sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out evenly. Procedures such as this are an effective help to our quilters!
