Lone Star Quilt – Twin

The Lone Star Quilt is likely one of the most recognizable quilt patterns to Americans with its large central star made of diamond shapes.

The Lone Star Quilt measures generous enough in length and width to eliminate a bed skirt and to provide for a pillow tuck. The Lone Star is beautifully echoed on the pillow top with four miniature stars.

The Lone Star Quilt with a scalloped border is very neatly hand-quilted by one Pennsylvania Amish lady, insuring even stitching. She used 260 yards of thread to skillfully hand-stitch this quilt. The quilt is initialed and dated.

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

Over the centuries, many types of strategies have been developed to make it less complicated for quilters to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is named paper piecing, which is frequently applied to combine the complicated edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it name designates, uses an unique paper pattern on top of which the cloth segments are sewn. The pattern leads the needleworker to properly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out flat. Methodologies such as this are a fantastic aid to our quilters!
