Twinkling Star Quilt – Queen

$785.00

The Twinkling Star Quilt is a beautiful pattern with one lone star in the center and many small stars arranged to twinkle around it. Star patterns are some of the oldest quilt patterns, but great precision is needed to make all the star points meet and lie flat! This quilt was hand-stitched with 336 yards of thread by one Amish lady to ensure uniform stitches. This quilt is initialed and dated. On a queen bed, this quilt will have a 20 inch drop.

Measures 100″ wide x 108″ long.

 

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 cozy blanket: it is also a piece of art. The artisans that make our quilts pick top-notch vivid materials and arrange them into an appealing work of art. Choose from our stock of over two hundred Amish homemade quilts for a quilt that best enhances your home design.

Though the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to make certain tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those 2 layers, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as exceptional washing results.

You will find our quilts to be rather sizable in length and width. Most of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's size differs as well. We list the quilt's measurements as well as the calculated drop for you to compare to the size you want. Definitely do your measuring ahead of purchasing!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

Over the centuries, a variety of tactics have been developed to make it much simpler for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these methodologies is called paper piecing, which is normally employed to piece the elaborate edges of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it name implies, uses a distinct paper pattern on which the cloth cuts are stitched. The pattern directs the quilter to correctly assemble the pieces together so that the finalized top will lie out evenly. Solutions such as this are a fabulous aid to our quilters!
