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 cozy blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists that develop our quilts choose high quality vibrant fabrics and arrange them into a creative masterpiece. Choose from our stock of over two hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your home design.

While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as superb washing outcomes.

The majority of our quilts are generous enough to take care of the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's size can be different. You'll find we designate the quilt's measurements in conjunction with the calculated drop for you to compare to the sizing you need. Definitely do your homework ahead of buying!

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

For hundreds of years, quite a few techniques have been cultivated to make it more convenient for quilters to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is named paper piecing, which is popularly taken advantage of to assemble the challenging corners of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it title illustrates, uses a particular paper pattern on top of which the fabric cuts are stitched. The pattern guides the needleworker to successfully assemble the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out flat. Tactics such as this are a fantastic support to our quilters!
