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 298 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 20.5 inches of drop per side.

Measures 101″ x 114″ 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.
