Measures 96″ x 114″ 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! White and burgundy stars alternate throughout the quilt to give it a continuous pattern. The Eight-Point Star quilt has a scalloped slate border all the way around and is very neatly hand-quilted by one Amish lady, which insures uniform stitches in all 313 yards of hand-quilting.

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

Over the centuries, various methodologies have been perfected to make it less complicated for quilters to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is paper piecing, which is very often taken advantage of to combine the complicated points of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a specific paper pattern onto which the material pieces are sewn. The pattern guides the seamstress to accurately stitch the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out flat. Tactics of this sort as this are a tremendous aid to our quilters!
