Eight Point Star Quilt-Queen

$779.00

Measures 104″ x 112″ long.

This Eight Point Star Quilt is made with beautiful shades of white and blue. A quilt is not only a cozy bedspread: it is also a piece of artwork. It is made wide enough to provide a 22 inch drop on either side of the bed. 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 most popular is the Eight-Point Star. This quilt is hand quilted with 381 yards of hand stitching by Mrs. Uriah Hershberger.

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 only a comfy bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans who develop our quilts select high quality vivid fabrics and organize them in an appealing masterpiece. Select from our stock of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your taste.

Although the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter sewing, 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, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and exceptional washing outcomes.

Most of our quilts are large enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's sizing is different. You'll find we designate the quilt's measurements in addition to the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are trying to find. Definitely do your measuring ahead of your purchase!

Can you wash these quilts?

Yes, these quilts are certainly machine-washable! We advise complying with these guidelines for best results:

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

The term handmade is typically utilized to describe crafts produced by a craftsman rather than a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is distinct since it is not mass-produced. Not all the stitching in a hand-crafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical devices to produce his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use various devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotating blade knife and stitch them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter deals with merely thimble, string, as well as needle to quilt numerous tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time as well as skill to create a thing distinctively for you.
