Shadow Star Quilt-Queen



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.
