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 310 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. This quilt is initialed and dated.

Measures 98″ x 108″ 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 comfy blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters that create our quilts pick top quality vibrant fabrics and arrange them in an appealing work of art. Pick from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best matches your home design.

Though the fabric pieces are sewn together by machine to guarantee 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 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth as well as exceptional washing outcomes.

You will find our quilts to be rather large in length and width. As a matter of fact, most of our quilts are sizable enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, every quilt's size is different. You'll find we post the quilt's measurements with the estimated drop for you to compare to the sizing you want to have. Please do your measuring before your purchase!

Our designers possess a remarkably important assignment. They have the critical duty of settling upon coordinating fabric materials from a seismic array of patterns manufactured by a variety of fabric designers and companies.
