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 362 yards of hand quilting. This beautiful quilt was hand-quilted by one Amish or Mennonite woman to ensure uniform stitching and is initialed and dated. On a queen bed, this quilt will have 22 inches of drop per side.

Measures 104″ wide 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.

A quilt is not just a relaxing blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters that create our quilts choose high quality vibrant fabrics and arrange them in an attractive masterpiece. Select from our stock of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your home design.

Although the fabric pieces are stitched together by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and also excellent washing outcomes.

Just about all of our quilts are large enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's size can be different. You'll find we list the quilt's measurements in addition to the determined drop for you to compare to the measurements you want to have. It is important to do your research prior to your purchase!

Can you wash these quilts?

As a matter of fact, our quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We suggest complying with these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Did you know?

Each step of the quilt-making process needs a specific woman's expertise. Each of our ladies specializes in either assembling or quilting. As a result, at least two ladies are included in making each quilt. The women who sew the tops with each other specialize in piecing particular quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches are different, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each lady to end up being a professional in her work.
