Starry Night Quilt-Queen

The Starry Night Quilt boasts a beautiful center star surrounded by smaller stars. Surrounded by a scalloped border, this beautiful heirloom was hand-quilted by Mrs. L Yoder using 355 yards of thread. She spent many hours carefully crafting this quilt to ensure even stitching and initialed and dated it once it was done. On a queen bed, this quilt will have an 20 inch 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 relaxing bed covering: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters who develop our quilts select top-notch vivid materials and arrange them in an eye-catching work of art. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your home design.

Though the fabric pieces are stitched together by machine to make sure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both heat as well as outstanding washing outcomes.

You will find our quilts to be rather sizable in length and width. Actuality, nearly all of our quilts are sizable enough to relieve the necessity for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as mattress heights are different, each quilt's dimensions differs as well. We specify the quilt's measurements alongside the calculated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are looking for. Please do your measuring prior to purchasing!

Are our quilts washable?

Fortunately, these quilts are indeed machine-washable! We suggest complying with these standards for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

For hundreds of years, various sorts of strategies have been cultivated to make it easier for quilters to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these techniques is called paper piecing, which is frequently employed to combine the elaborate angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a particular paper pattern on top of which the fabric sections are sewn. The pattern guides the seamstress to successfully sew the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out evenly. Solutions such as this are an excellent help to our quilters!
