Shadow Star Quilt-Queen

Sale!

$725.00 $625.00

Measures 98″ x 112″ long.

The Shadow Star Quilt is handmade by a Pennsylvania Amish woman. Since it is quilted by one lady, the stitches are all uniform with 232 yards of hand-quilting. The Shadow Star quilt measures generous enough in length and width to eliminate a bed skirt and to provide for a pillow tuck. On a queen bed, this quilt will have approximately 19 inches of drop per 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 merely a comfortable bedspread: it is also a piece of artwork. The crafters that design our quilts pick top quality vivid fabrics and organize them in a captivating masterpiece. Pick from our stock of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your taste.

While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat and exceptional washing outcomes.

The majority of our quilts are generous enough to eliminate the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's measurements is different. We designate the quilt's measurements as well as the determined drop for you to compare to the overall size you are looking for. Kindly do your measuring ahead of purchasing!

Are our quilts washable?

Fortunately, our quilts are undoubtedly washable in a washing machine! We advise complying with these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Did you know?

For hundreds of years, various strategies have been developed to make it simpler for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is paper piecing, which is nearly always employed to assemble the complex points of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it title implies, uses a particular paper pattern onto which the fabric fragments are stitched. The pattern directs the quilter to correctly sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out evenly. Tactics of this sort as this are a wonderful aid to our quilters!
