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.

A quilt is not just a comfy bed covering: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters that make our quilts pick high quality vibrant fabrics and arrange them in a creative work of art. Pick from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your taste.

Although the pieces of fabric are sewn together 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 in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also excellent washing outcomes.

Most of our quilts are generous enough to take care of the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's size is different. We specify the quilt's measurements with the calculated drop for you to compare to the sizing you want to have. Kindly do your homework ahead of buying!

Washing Quilts?

Did you know?

Considering that a lot of Amish as well as Mennonite ladies stay at home to care for their households, their jobs must coincide with their home life. We permit these women to work at their own rate so that they can adequately look after their household.
