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 337 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 19.5 inch drop.

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 fabric pieces are stitched by machine to ensure tighter sewing, all the quilting is done by hand. 100% cotton materials compose the top and bottom of the quilt. The batting sandwiched between those two layers, nonetheless, is 100% polyester. This polyester batting warranties both warmth and outstanding washing results.

The majority of our quilts are large enough to reduce the need for a dust ruffle or pillow shams. Just as bed heights vary, each quilt's dimensions varies. We designate the quilt's measurements alongside the determined drop for you to compare to the dimensions you are looking for. Please do your homework ahead of your purchase!

Did you know?

Over the centuries, an array of strategies have been developed to make it more convenient for quilters to sew multi-angled quilts together. One of these tactics is called paper piecing, which is popularly taken advantage of to compose the complex angles of the Mariner's Compass quilt. Paper piecing, as it title implies, uses a special paper pattern on which the cloth sections are sewn. The pattern leads the seamstress to correctly sew the pieces together so that the completed top will lay out evenly. Solutions of this sort as this are a wonderful support to our quilt-makers!
