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 just a relaxing bed cover: it is also a piece of art. The artisans who make our quilts pick top-notch vivid fabrics and arrange them into an attractive work of art. Pick from our selection of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your taste.

Though the fabric pieces are sewn together by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as superb washing results.

You will discover our quilts to be really generous in length and width. Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to remove the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, every quilt's proportions varies. You'll find we designate the quilt's measurements in addition to the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are looking for. Kindly do your measuring prior to purchasing!

Can you wash these quilts?

Fortunately, these quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We recommend adhering to these standards for best results:

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

Each step of the quilt-making process requires a certain woman's competence. Each of our women specializes in either piecing or quilting. Therefore, at the very least 2 ladies are involved in making each quilt. The women who stitch the tops with each other concentrate on piecing specific quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches are different, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to become a professional in her field.
