This Eight Point Star Quilt is made with beautiful shades of brown and mint. A quilt is not only a cozy bedspread: it is also a piece of artwork. It is made wide enough to provide a 20 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.

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 merely a comfortable bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists who create our quilts pick top-notch vivid fabrics and arrange them into a distinct work of art. Choose from our selection of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your taste.

Although the fabric pieces are sewn together by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and excellent washing outcomes.

Almost all of our quilts are sizable enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's proportions is different. You'll find we post the quilt's measurements in conjunction with the estimated drop for you to compare to the overall size you want to have. Definitely do your research ahead of making a purchase!

Are our quilts washable?

As a matter of fact, these quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We recommend adhering to these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Did you know?

For hundreds of years, a variety of solutions have been cultivated to make it less complicated for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is called paper piecing, which is often taken advantage of to combine the complicated edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it name implies, uses a distinct paper pattern onto which the cloth cuts are sewn. The pattern guides the seamstress to correctly stitch the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out evenly. Methods such as this are an excellent aid to our quilters!
