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 cozy blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists that design our quilts select quality colorful fabrics and organize them into a creative masterpiece. Choose from our stock of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your home design.

While the pieces of fabric are sewn together by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as superb washing outcomes.

The majority of our quilts are sizable enough to take care of the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's overall size is different. We specify the quilt's dimensions together with the determined drop for you to compare to the overall size you want. Please do your homework prior to your purchase!

Are our quilts washable?

Fortunately, these quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We suggest adhering to these standards for ideal handling results:

Did you know?

Over the centuries, a lot of procedures have been developed to make it easier for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these solutions is paper piecing, which is often times used to piece the complicated angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name illustrates, uses a distinct paper pattern onto which the fabric segments are sewn. The pattern guides the needleworker to correctly assemble the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out evenly. Tactics such as this are a fabulous support to our quilters!
