$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.

Amish Handmade Quilt Facts

The term handmade is generally utilized to describe crafts created by an artisan as opposed to a factory. Because it is not mass-produced, each handmade quilt is special. Nevertheless, not all the sewing in a hand-made quilt is done by hand. Just as the woodcrafter uses mechanical tools to produce his craftsmanship, our seamstresses make use of various tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her items with a rotating blade knife and stitch them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter collaborates with only thimble, thread, as well as needle to quilt numerous tiny stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and talent to produce an item distinctively for you.
