Gorgeous Vintage Star Quilt Top, Newly hand-quilted by Amish quilters
I have been collecting vintage quilt tops at local (Midwest) auctions and from eBay for twenty years, always with the thought that "I'd do something" with them. Ha! They started to pile up and so I have found a group of local Amish quilters to take the quilt tops and transform them into heirloom-quality quilts.
This quilt measures 68" x 72". It would be lovely as a bed covering, lap quilt or wall hanging.
The top is made of fabric in solid mustard-y yellow, and prints using white, reds, pinks, and an occasional greenish/aqua. The colors are vibrant - the quilt top has obviously been carefully stored.
The batting, backing and binding are all new. The batting is cotton/poly. The batting has a bit of a loft, creating softly pillowed puffs. The back is a plain off-white cotton, chosen to show off the hand-quilting. I attached the binding myself; it is a contemporary cotton print chosen to compliment the older fabrics in the quilt. It was attached by machine and then hand-sewn to the back.
The hand-quilting is stunning. The stitches are tiny, precise and gorgeous, 9-12 per inch.
I will ship via USPS Priority, which is trackable.
Please convo with any questions!
