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 only a comfortable bed cover: it is also a piece of art. The artisans that make our quilts choose high quality vibrant materials and organize them into an appealing work of art. Choose from our selection of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your home design.

Though the fabric pieces are sewn together by machine to make sure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and excellent washing results.

The majority of our quilts are sizable enough to take care of the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's dimensions can be different. We post the quilt's measurements in addition to the estimated drop for you to compare to the measurements you are trying to find. Kindly do your measuring prior to buying!

Our artists have a really significant responsibility. They possess the significant task of determining complimentary patterns from a massive selection of fabric materials fabricated by a variety of fabric artists and companies. Each pattern chosen is integral to the final fashion of the quilt. The artisan behind this quilt did an admirable job of finding visually appealing fabric materials that balance each other and correlate favorably. This is the reason we consider a quilt a piece of artwork!
