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 367 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 111″ 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 cozy bedspread: it is also a masterpiece of art. The crafters who develop our quilts select top-notch vibrant materials and arrange them into a creative work of art. Select from our selection of over two hundred handmade quilts for a quilt that best complements your style.

Though the fabric pieces are stitched by machine to ensure 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, however, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting guaranties both warmth and excellent washing outcomes.

You will find our quilts to be rather large in length and width. Most of our quilts are generous enough to reduce the necessity for a dust ruffle and pillow shams. Just as mattress heights vary, each and every quilt's size is different. We specify the quilt's dimensions together with the determined drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are trying to find. It is important to do your research before making a purchase!

Are our quilts washable?

Fortunately, these quilts are undoubtedly machine-washable! We recommend adhering to these guidelines for the best care of your heirloom quilt:

Amish Homemade Quilt Facts

Over the centuries, various sorts of tactics have been perfected to make it much easier for quilt-makers to stitch multi-angled quilts together. One of these methods is called paper piecing, which is very often taken advantage of to piece the challenging angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it title suggests, uses a specific paper pattern on which the fabric segments are sewn. The pattern leads the quilter to accurately stitch the pieces together so that the finished top will lay out evenly. Methods such as this are a fantastic aid to our quilters!
