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 just a comfortable bed covering: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters who design our quilts select quality vibrant fabrics and arrange them into an eye-catching work of art. Pick from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your style.

Although the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials 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 and outstanding washing outcomes.

You will find our quilts to be rather generous in length and width. Most of our quilts are generous enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's overall size can be different as well. You'll find we specify the quilt's measurements alongside the calculated drop for you to compare to the overall size you need. It is important to do your measuring prior to purchasing!

Washing Quilts?

Did you know?

It is essential that the quilt you purchase is a suitable match for your bed. Every quilt's size is different. Confirm your size by measuring the edge of your bed from the top of the mattress to the length you want. Do your measuring ahead of purchasing!
