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 317 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 115″ 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.

Though the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and exceptional washing results.

Just about all of our quilts are generous enough to take care of the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's proportions can be different. You'll find we publish the quilt's measurements together with the estimated drop for you to compare to the size you are trying to find. Definitely do your research prior to buying!
