Shadow Star Quilt-Queen

$720.00

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 222 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 only a comfy bed cover: it is also a masterpiece of artwork. The artisans who create our quilts choose top quality colorful materials and organize them in a creative work of art. Choose from our selection of over two hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly matches your taste.

While the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those two layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and also excellent washing results.

Almost all of our quilts are sizable enough to eliminate the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each quilt's measurements differs. You'll find we specify the quilt's measurements in addition to the calculated drop for you to compare to the overall size you are trying to find. It is important to do your measuring prior to buying!

Can you wash these quilts?

As a matter of fact, these quilts are certainly machine-washable! We recommend adhering to these standards for ideal handling results:

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

The term handmade is frequently used to define crafts produced by a craftsman as opposed to a factory. Since it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is special. However, not all the sewing in a handcrafted quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter utilizes mechanical tools to create his craftsmanship, our seamstresses use numerous tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotary blade knife and also stitch them together on the sewing machine. The quilter deals with just needle, thimble, as well as thread to quilt thousands of little stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and skill to develop a thing distinctively for you.
