Eight Point Star Quilt – Queen

$779.00

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.

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 guarantee 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 two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also exceptional washing outcomes.

The majority of our quilts are generous enough to take care of the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's size is different. You'll find we designate the quilt's dimensions in conjunction with the calculated drop for you to compare to the size you are trying to find. Definitely do your homework before making a purchase!

Did you know?

Over the centuries, various methodologies have been cultivated to make it less complicated for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is called paper piecing, which is nearly always applied to put together the intricate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title designates, uses an unique paper pattern onto which the fabric fragments are sewn. The pattern directs the quilter to correctly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out flat. Methods of this sort as this are an effective aid to our quilt-makers!
