Twinkling Star Quilt – Queen

$785.00

Measures 101″ x 113″

The Twinkling Star quilt is a multi-pieced star 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! It is neatly hand-quilted by one Amish lady to insure uniform stitches. The quilt fits a queen-size bed, allowing 20.5 inches of drop per side with sufficient length for a pillow tuck.

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 bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of art. The artisans that design our quilts pick quality colorful materials and arrange them in a distinct work of art. Pick from our selection of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that perfectly enhances your taste.

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

Most of our quilts are large enough to relieve the need for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's overall size varies. We publish the quilt's dimensions in conjunction with the estimated drop for you to compare to the measurements you need. Definitely do your homework ahead of purchasing!

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

Each step of the quilt-making process needs a certain woman's knowledge. Every one of our ladies concentrates on either assembling or quilting. At least two ladies are included in making each quilt. The ladies who stitch the tops with each other specialize in assembling particular quilt patterns. Considering that each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each woman to become a specialist in her field.
