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 just a comfortable bed covering: it is also a piece of art. The crafters that create our quilts select high quality vivid fabrics and arrange them into a captivating work of art. Select from our stock of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best complements your style.

Although the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those 2 layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and also superb washing results.

Most of our quilts are sizable enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's overall size varies. We list the quilt's dimensions as well as the determined drop for you to compare to the size you want. Definitely do your measuring ahead of making a purchase!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

The term handmade is frequently utilized to describe crafts produced by an artisan in contrast to a manufacturing facility. Each handmade quilt is distinct due to the fact that it is not mass-produced. Nevertheless, not all the sewing in a handmade quilt is done manually. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical tools to develop his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use numerous devices to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary knife and also stitch them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter works with only needle, thimble, as well as string to quilt numerous little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also ability to develop a product uniquely for you.
