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 relaxing bedspread: it is also a piece of art. The artisans that create our quilts select top-notch vibrant materials and arrange them in an eye-catching work of art. Pick from our selection of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that perfectly complements your style.

Though the pieces of fabric are sewn together by machine to make sure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and exceptional washing results.

You will discover our quilts to be relatively generous in length and width. Almost all of our quilts are generous enough to overcome 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 estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are looking for. Definitely do your measuring ahead of making a purchase!

Can you wash these quilts?

Yes, our quilts are certainly machine-washable! We advise complying with these standards for ideal handling results:

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

Over the centuries, a number of procedures have been perfected to make it much easier for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is called paper piecing, which is routinely applied to piece the elaborate angles of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it title signifies, uses a special paper pattern on top of which the cloth sections are stitched. The pattern helps the seamstress to correctly assemble the pieces together so that the completed top will lie out flat. Tactics of this sort as this are a wonderful aid to our quilt-makers!
