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 just a cozy blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans who create our quilts pick top quality colorful fabrics and organize them into a creative masterpiece. Pick from our selection of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your home design.

Though the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make sure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and exceptional washing outcomes.

Most of our quilts are sizable enough to take care of the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's proportions is different. You'll find we designate the quilt's measurements with the determined drop for you to compare to the overall size you may need. Definitely do your research prior to purchasing!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

Each and every step of the quilt-making process needs a particular lady's know-how. Every one of our ladies focuses on either assembling or quilting. As a result, at least two ladies are entailed in making each quilt. The women that sew the tops together specialize in assembling particular quilt patterns. Considering that each quilter's stitches differ, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system allows each lady to end up being a specialist in her field.
