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.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is typically made use of to define crafts produced by an artisan as opposed to a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is unique because it is not mass-produced. Not all the stitching in a hand-made quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to produce his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating knife and also stitch them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter works with just thimble, thread, and also needle to quilt numerous little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as talent to create a thing distinctly for you.
