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.

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

The term handmade is commonly utilized to define crafts created by an artisan in contrast to a factory. Each handmade quilt is unique since it is not mass-produced. However, not all the stitching in a hand-made quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use various devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary blade knife and stitch them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter collaborates with merely thread, needle, as well as thimble to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as skill to produce a thing distinctly for you.
