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 merely a comfortable bedspread: it is also a piece of artwork. The artisans that create our quilts pick high quality colorful fabrics and organize them in an appealing work of art. Choose from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your taste.

Although the pieces of fabric are stitched together by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as superb washing results.

Just about all of our quilts are large enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's dimensions varies. We specify the quilt's measurements alongside the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are trying to find. It is important to do your measuring ahead of making a purchase!

Can you wash these quilts?

As a matter of fact, our quilts are certainly washable in a washing machine! We recommend adhering to these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
