Eight Point Star Quilt – King

$865.00

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 448 yards of hand quilting and is dated and initialed. On a king bed, this quilt will have 18.5 inches of drop per side.

Measures 115″ wide x 116″ 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 comfortable blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists that design our quilts choose top quality colorful fabrics and arrange them in an attractive work of art. Choose from our stock of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best complements your home design.

While the pieces of fabric are stitched with each other by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth as well as exceptional washing results.

You will find our quilts to be relatively large in length and width. As a matter of fact, almost all of our quilts are large enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, every quilt's dimensions differs. We publish the quilt's dimensions alongside the estimated drop for you to compare to the proportions you are looking for. It is important to do your measuring before making a purchase!
