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 the most popular is the Eight Point Star. It includes a scalloped border and many yards of hand quilting. This beautiful quilt was hand-quilted with 398 yards of thread by one Amish or Mennonite woman to ensure uniform stitching and is initialed and dated. On a queen bed, this quilt will have 20 inches of drop per side.

Measures 101″ x 114″ long.

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 merely a relaxing blanket: it is also a piece of art. The artists who create our quilts pick top-notch vivid fabrics and organize them in a creative work of art. Choose from our selection of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your taste.

Though the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as outstanding washing results.

Most of our quilts are large enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's size can be different. You'll find we post the quilt's dimensions alongside the determined drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are trying to find. Please do your measuring prior to your purchase!

Can you wash these quilts?

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

Did you know?

The term handmade is frequently utilized to describe crafts produced by a craftsman in contrast to a factory. Each handmade quilt is one-of-a-kind because it is not mass-produced. However, not all the stitching in a handcrafted quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical devices to create his workmanship, our seamstresses use various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating blade knife and also sew them together on the sewing machine. The quilter functions with only thimble, string, and also needle to quilt hundreds of little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also skill to produce an item distinctly for you.
