Eight Point Star Quilt-King

$815.00

Measures 112″ x 112″ long.

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 black border and over 300 yards of hand quilting. On a king bed, this quilt will have 17 inches of drop per side.

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 covering: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artisans that develop our quilts choose high quality vibrant fabrics and arrange them into a distinct work of art. Select from our selection of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your style.

While the fabric pieces are stitched with each other by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth as well as excellent washing outcomes.

The majority of our quilts are large enough to take care of the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's proportions varies. We designate the quilt's dimensions with the calculated drop for you to compare to the overall size you need. Definitely do your measuring before purchasing!

Are our quilts washable?

Fortunately, our quilts are indeed machine-washable! We recommend adhering to these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Did you know?

Each and every step of the quilt-making process requires a specific woman's competence. Each of our women focuses on either assembling or quilting. Therefore, at least 2 ladies are included in making each quilt. The ladies that stitch the tops together concentrate on assembling certain quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to come to be a specialist in her work.
