Sale!

$685.00

Measures 98″ x 112″

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 19 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.

While the pieces of fabric are stitched by machine to ensure tighter stitching, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton fabrics make up the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched in between those 2 layers, nevertheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth as well as exceptional washing outcomes.

Amish Handmade Quilt Trivia

The term handmade is typically made use of to describe crafts created by a craftsman in contrast to a factory. Each handmade quilt is distinct since it is not mass-produced. Not all the stitching 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 different tools to craft these quilts. The seamstress cuts her pieces with a rotary blade knife as well as sew them with each other on the stitching machine. The quilter works with merely thread, needle, as well as thimble to quilt numerous small stitches throughout the quilt. Handmade is a gift: it is the gift of time and also talent to produce a thing uniquely for you.
