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 19 inches of drop per side.

Measures 98″ x 114″ 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 merely a comfortable blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters that create our quilts pick high quality vivid fabrics and organize them into a distinct masterpiece. Select from our stock of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your taste.

Although the fabric pieces are sewn with each other by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as superb washing outcomes.

The majority of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's sizing is different. You'll find we list the quilt's measurements alongside the determined drop for you to compare to the measurements you need. Please do your homework before your purchase!
