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 475 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 17.5 inches of drop per side.

Measures 113″ 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 just a relaxing blanket: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artists that design our quilts select high quality vibrant fabrics and organize them in a captivating work of art. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your style.

Although the fabric pieces are stitched 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 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as superb washing outcomes.

Almost all of our quilts are large enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's size is different. We publish the quilt's measurements alongside the determined drop for you to compare to the overall size you may need. Definitely do your research ahead of making a purchase!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

The term handmade is typically made use of to describe crafts produced by an artisan instead of a manufacturing facility. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is unique. Not all the sewing in a handcrafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical devices to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use numerous tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating blade knife as well as stitch them together on the sewing machine. The quilter works with merely needle, thimble, and also string to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as skill to produce an item distinctly for you.
