Eight Point Star Quilt – Queen


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 border and many yards of hand quilting. This beautiful quilt was hand-quilted by one Amish or Mennonite woman to ensure uniform stitching. On a queen bed, this quilt will have 21 inches of drop per side.

Measures 102″ x 110″ 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.

Did you know?

For hundreds of years, all sorts of strategies have been developed to make it more convenient for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is called paper piecing, which is regularly utilized to compose the intricate corners of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a special paper pattern on top of which the fabric cuts are stitched. The pattern guides the seamstress to correctly stitch the pieces together so that the finalized top will lay out evenly. Methodologies of this sort as this are a marvelous aid to our quilters!
