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 382 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 21 inches of drop per side.

Measures 120″ x 120″ 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 comfy blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists who make our quilts select top quality vibrant materials and arrange them in an eye-catching masterpiece. Select from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your style.

Although the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth as well as superb washing outcomes.

Most of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's dimensions varies. We post the quilt's dimensions along with the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are trying to find. Kindly do your research before your purchase!

Can you wash these quilts?

As a matter of fact, our quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We advise adhering to these standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
