Measures 96″ x 116″ long.

This hand-stitched quilt is done by one Amish or Mennonite woman to ensure uniform stitching throughout the quilt. The Morning Star design is sure to add a beautiful artistic touch to any bedroom. The quilt was hand made with 205 yards of thread by Mattie Speicher. The quilt is initialed and dated and is wide enough to provide an 18 inch drop on either side.

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 only a comfortable bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artisans who create our quilts choose top-notch vibrant materials and arrange them into a creative work of art. Choose from our stock of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your taste.

While the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both heat as well as excellent washing outcomes.

Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to take care of the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights differ, each quilt's measurements can be different. We list the quilt's dimensions alongside the estimated drop for you to compare to the proportions you are looking for. It is important to do your research before your purchase!

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

Over the centuries, various sorts of tactics have been cultivated to make it simpler for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these procedures is called paper piecing, which is nearly always used to put together the complicated corners of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it title illustrates, uses a specific paper pattern on which the cloth sections are sewn. The pattern leads the seamstress to perfectly sew the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out flat. Tactics of this sort as this are a great help to our quilt-makers!
