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.

While the pieces of fabric are sewn together by machine to make certain tighter sewing, 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, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and also exceptional washing results.

Just about all of our quilts are sizable enough to take care of the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's sizing is different. We post the quilt's dimensions along with the determined drop for you to compare to the proportions you are looking for. Definitely do your research before your purchase!

Did you know?

Over the centuries, an array of procedures have been perfected to make it less complicated for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is named paper piecing, which is typically adopted to combine the complex edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name suggests, uses a special paper pattern on top of which the cloth segments are stitched. The pattern helps the quilter to properly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out flat. Procedures of this sort as this are an excellent help to our quilt-makers!
