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 by one Amish lady to ensure uniform stitches. On queen bed, this quilt will have a 20 inch drop.

Measures 100″ wide x 114″ 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 merely a relaxing bedspread: it is also a piece of art. The artisans who develop our quilts select quality colorful fabrics and organize them in an appealing work of art. Choose from our stock of over 2 hundred homemade quilts for a quilt that best matches your home design.

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

You will find our quilts to be rather large in length and width. In fact, nearly all of our quilts are sizable enough to take care of the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights differ, each quilt's size is different as well. We list the quilt's measurements as well as the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are looking for. Kindly do your measuring before your purchase!

Are our quilts washable?

Fortunately, these quilts are indeed washable in a washing machine! We recommend complying with these guidelines for best results:

Amish Homemade Quilt Trivia

For hundreds of years, a lot of methods have been perfected to make it more convenient for quilt-makers to piece multi-angled quilts together. One of these methods is called paper piecing, which is routinely taken advantage of to compose the complicated corners of the Mariner's Compass quilts. Paper piecing, as it name implies, uses a particular paper pattern on which the cloth segments are stitched. The pattern directs the quilter to accurately stitch the pieces together so that the finished top will lie out flat. Strategies of this sort as this are a fabulous support to our quilters!
