Eight Point Star Quilt – Queen

$779.00

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 brown border and over 300 yards of hand quilting. This beautiful quilt was hand-quilted by Mrs. Enos Miller. On a queen bed, this quilt will have 21.5 inches of drop per side.

Measures 103″ wide x 113″ 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.

A quilt is not just a cozy bed covering: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artists who design our quilts pick top quality vivid materials and organize them into an attractive work of art. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your taste.

Though the pieces of fabric are sewn together by machine to make certain 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 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as outstanding washing results.

Most of our quilts are sizable enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights are different, each quilt's sizing varies. We post the quilt's dimensions together with the determined drop for you to compare to the dimensions you may need. It is important to do your research before purchasing!

Are our quilts washable?

As a matter of fact, these quilts are indeed machine-washable! We advise complying with these standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:
