Measures 100″ x 111″ long.

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 relaxing bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The crafters who design our quilts pick top-notch vibrant fabrics and organize them in a creative work of art. Pick from our selection of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your style.

Although the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to ensure tighter sewing, 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 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and superb washing outcomes.

Almost all of our quilts are sizable enough to overcome the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's proportions can be different. You'll find we list the quilt's dimensions in addition to the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you want to have. Kindly do your homework prior to making a purchase!

Washing Quilts?

Yes, these quilts are certainly 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, quite a number of procedures have been perfected to make it more convenient for quilt-makers to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these solutions is named paper piecing, which is frequently taken advantage of to compose the complex edges of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it name illustrates, uses an unique paper pattern on top of which the cloth cuts are stitched. The pattern helps the quilter to properly stitch the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out evenly. Strategies such as this are a tremendous aid to our quilters!
