Sale!

$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 just a relaxing blanket: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artists that develop our quilts choose top quality vibrant materials and arrange them into an eye-catching masterpiece. Choose from our selection of over two hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your taste.

While the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make certain tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as excellent washing results.

Almost all of our quilts are large enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's sizing is different. We post the quilt's dimensions with the calculated drop for you to compare to the proportions you may need. It is important to do your homework prior to your purchase!
