Eight Point Star Quilt-Queen

$779.00

Measures 102″ x 110″ long.

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.

A quilt is not just a relaxing bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The crafters who develop our quilts choose high quality colorful materials and arrange them in an eye-catching masterpiece. Select from our stock of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your style.

Although the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and exceptional washing results.

Just about all of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's proportions is different. We post the quilt's dimensions as well as the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you may need. Kindly do your homework before buying!

Can you wash these quilts?

Yes, our quilts are indeed machine-washable! We recommend complying with these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

Every step of the quilt-making process calls for a certain lady's expertise. Every one of our ladies specializes in either piecing or quilting. At the very least 2 ladies are involved in making each quilt. The ladies that stitch the tops together concentrate on assembling particular quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches differ, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system allows each woman to become a specialist in her field.
