Eight Point Star Quilt – King

$798.00

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 the most popular is the Eight-Point Star. It includes a scalloped black border and almost 400 yards of hand quilting done by only one Pennsylvania Amish or Mennonite woman to ensure even stitching. On a king bed, this quilt will have 18 inches of drop per side.

Measures 114″ x 115″ 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 bed covering: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists that make our quilts select top quality colorful materials and arrange them in an eye-catching masterpiece. Choose from our stock of over two hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your taste.

While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, 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, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as exceptional washing results.

Just about all of our quilts are large enough to take care of the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's overall size is different. We designate the quilt's measurements together with the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you want. Please do your homework before your purchase!
