Eight-Point Star Quilt-Queen

$779.00

Measures 95″ 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! 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.

A quilt is not only a cozy blanket: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists who create our quilts select quality vivid materials and organize them in a creative masterpiece. Select from our selection of over 2 hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your taste.

Although the fabric pieces are stitched with each other by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as outstanding washing outcomes.

Most of our quilts are sizable enough to take care of the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's overall size varies. We publish the quilt's measurements along with the estimated drop for you to compare to the measurements you need. Kindly do your homework before purchasing!

Can you wash these quilts?

Fortunately, our quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We recommend complying with these guidelines for ideal handling results:
