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 380 yards of thread by one Amish or Mennonite woman to ensure uniform stitching and is initialed and dated. On a queen bed, this quilt will have 20 inches of drop per side.

Measures 100″ x 114″ 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 bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The crafters who make our quilts select top quality colorful fabrics and organize them in an attractive masterpiece. Choose from our selection of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your home design.

Though the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and also outstanding washing outcomes.

You will find our quilts to be remarkably generous in length and width. Most of our quilts are generous enough to minimize the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, every quilt's dimensions is different. We designate the quilt's dimensions in addition to the calculated drop for you to compare to the overall size you may need. It is important to do your research prior to buying!

Did you know?

Over the centuries, many different techniques have been developed to make it more convenient for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is named paper piecing, which is very often applied to combine the challenging points of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title specifies, uses a particular paper pattern on which the fabric cuts are sewn. The pattern guides the seamstress to properly stitch the pieces together so that the completed top will lay out evenly. Strategies such as this are a fabulous help to our quilt-makers!
