Eight Point Star Quilt – King

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 most popular is the Eight Point Star. It includes a scalloped border and over 380 yards of hand quilting and is dated and initialed. On a king bed, this quilt will have 19 inches of drop per side.

Measures 116″ wide x 116″ 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 relaxing blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters who develop our quilts select top quality colorful fabrics and organize them into a creative work of art. Select from our selection of over two hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best matches your style.

Though the pieces of fabric are sewn with each other by machine to make certain 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 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and outstanding washing results.

The majority of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's overall size is different. We specify the quilt's dimensions alongside the determined drop for you to compare to the sizing you want. It is important to do your research before making a purchase!

Are our quilts washable?

Fortunately, our quilts are certainly washable in a washing machine! We suggest the following standards for best results:

Did you know?

The term handmade is commonly utilized to describe crafts created by an artisan rather than a factory. Since it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is distinct. Nevertheless, not all the sewing in a hand-made quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical tools to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotary knife as well as sew them together on the sewing machine. The quilter functions with merely thimble, thread, as well as needle to quilt thousands of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as ability to create an item uniquely for you.
