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 border and over 350 yards of hand quilting. This beautiful quilt was hand-quilted by one Amish or Mennonite woman to ensure uniform stitching. On a queen bed, this quilt will have 18 inches of drop per side.

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.

The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also exceptional washing outcomes.

You will find our quilts to be relatively generous in length and width. Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's proportions varies. We specify the quilt's measurements in addition to the estimated drop for you to compare to the sizing you are trying to find.

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is typically made use of to describe crafts produced by a craftsman as opposed to a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is special due to the fact that it is not mass-produced. Not all the sewing in a hand-made quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter makes use of mechanical tools to create his workmanship, our seamstresses use various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotary blade knife as well as sew them with each other on the sewing machine. The quilter functions with just string, thimble, as well as needle to quilt hundreds of tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also ability to create an item distinctly for you.
