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.

While the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make sure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and also exceptional washing results.

You will discover our quilts to be rather generous in length and width. Actuality, almost all of our quilts are sizable enough to relieve the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is typically utilized to describe crafts created by an artisan instead of a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is distinct because it is not mass-produced. Nevertheless, not all the sewing in a handmade quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses make use of various devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating blade knife as well as sew them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter deals with merely string, thimble, as well as needle to quilt hundreds of small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and skill to produce an item distinctively for you.
