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.

While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to ensure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and superb washing outcomes.

You will discover our quilts to be remarkably generous in length and width. Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to minimize the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, every quilt's proportions differs. We designate the quilt's measurements along with the estimated drop for you to compare to the measurements you want.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is generally utilized to describe crafts produced by a craftsman as opposed to a manufacturing facility. Since it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is unique. Not all the sewing in a handcrafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical tools to produce his workmanship, our seamstresses utilize different devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating blade knife and stitch them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter works with merely thimble, needle, as well as thread to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and ability to develop a product distinctly for you.
