Eight Point Star Quilt-Queen

$779.00

Measures 102″ x 112″ long.

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.

A quilt is not only a comfortable blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans who develop our quilts pick top-notch colorful materials and arrange them into an attractive work of art. Select from our selection of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your style.

While the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and exceptional washing results.

Most of our quilts are generous enough to relieve the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's proportions can be different. You'll find we publish the quilt's dimensions along with the determined drop for you to compare to the proportions you want. Please do your research ahead of buying!

Are our quilts washable?

Fortunately, our quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We suggest adhering to these guidelines for ideal handling results:

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

Each step of the quilt-making process needs a certain lady's experience. Each of our ladies concentrates on either assembling or quilting. At the very least 2 ladies are involved in making each quilt. The ladies that stitch the tops together focus on piecing specific quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches differ, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to come to be a professional in her work.
