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 333 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 19 inch drop.

Measures 98″ 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 comfortable bed covering: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters that develop our quilts select top-notch vibrant fabrics and organize them in an appealing work of art. Choose from our stock of over two hundred Amish handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your style.

Though the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to guarantee tighter stitching, 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 and superb washing results.

You will discover our quilts to be remarkably generous in length and width. In fact, almost all of our quilts are sizable enough to relieve the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's proportions varies as well. We specify the quilt's dimensions in addition to the estimated drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are looking for. Please do your research before buying!

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

Each step of the quilt-making process calls for a specific woman's knowledge. Each of our ladies concentrates on either assembling or quilting. At least two ladies are involved in making each quilt. The women that sew the tops with each other focus on piecing particular quilt patterns. Because each quilter's stitches differ, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each lady to come to be a specialist in her field.
