Eight Point Star Quilt – Queen

$820.00

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 with 290 yards of thread by one Amish or Mennonite woman to ensure uniform stitching. On a queen bed, this quilt will have 18.5 inches of drop per side.

Measures 97″ x 113″ 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.

Each and every step of the quilt-making process needs a particular lady's expertise. Each of our women focuses on either assembling or quilting. At the very least 2 ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The women that sew the tops together concentrate on assembling certain quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches differ, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each lady to end up being a professional in her work.
