Eight Point Star Quilt – King

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.
