The Eight-Point Star Quilt is an intricate star pattern that traditionally allowed a woman to showcase her needlework skills.

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 cozy bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The crafters who develop our quilts pick high quality vivid fabrics and organize them into a distinct masterpiece. Pick from our selection of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your home design.

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

The majority of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's dimensions can be different. You'll find we publish the quilt's measurements along with the calculated drop for you to compare to the size you need. Please do your measuring prior to buying!

Can you wash these quilts?

As a matter of fact, these quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We recommend adhering to these guidelines for ideal handling results:
