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 most popular is the Eight-Point Star. The Eight-Point Star quilt has a scalloped border all the way around and is very neatly hand-quilted by one Amish lady, which insures uniform stitches in 303 yards of hand-quilting. On a queen sized bed, this quilt will allow 21 inches of drop.

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 Handmade Quilt Facts

For hundreds of years, various sorts of strategies have been cultivated to make it more convenient for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these strategies is paper piecing, which is frequently applied to assemble the complex points of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a special paper pattern onto which the material segments are stitched. The pattern helps the needleworker to properly stitch the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out flat. Strategies such as this are a very good support to our quilters!
