Eight Point Star Quilt – Queen

$779.00

Measures 102″x 100″ 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! Black and tan stars alternate throughout the quilt to give it a continuous pattern. The Eight-Point Star quilt has a scalloped slate border all the way around and is very neatly hand-quilted by one Amish lady, which insures uniform stitches in all 294 yards of hand-quilting.

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 cozy bed cover: it is also a piece of artwork. The artists who develop our quilts pick top quality colorful materials and arrange them in a creative masterpiece. Pick from our stock of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your taste.

Though the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make sure 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 two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat and also exceptional washing results.

Most of our quilts are sizable enough to overcome the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's measurements can be different. We publish the quilt's dimensions together with the determined drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are looking for. Kindly do your research before your purchase!
