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 border and 320 yards of hand quilting and is dated and initialed. On a king bed, this quilt will have 17.5 inches of drop per side.

Measures 113″ wide x 113″ 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 only a comfy blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans that develop our quilts choose quality vivid materials and arrange them into an eye-catching masterpiece. Choose from our stock of over two hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your style.

Though the fabric pieces are stitched together by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also excellent 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 bed heights are different, each quilt's measurements varies. You'll find we publish the quilt's dimensions together with the calculated drop for you to compare to the proportions you need. Definitely do your measuring ahead of making a purchase!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

Every step of the quilt-making process needs a particular lady's expertise. Every one of our ladies specializes in either piecing or quilting. At the very least 2 ladies are involved in making each quilt. The ladies who sew the tops with each other focus on piecing specific quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each lady to come to be a specialist in her field.
