An Almost Amish Quilt Exclusive with 100% labor from Amish artisans. This quilt is one of the most classic quilt designs: the Lone Star, known to have been in use by 1815. This Lone Star is executed beautifully in its use of concentric circles of color. The use of rose and burgundy, contrasted with the tan and avocado, is really dynamite. It has a scalloped border with beautiful quilted feathered hearts design on the border and a beautiful finishing touch of a contrast rose binding on the edge. We estimate there are over 79,000 individual hand stitches in this quilt. It is a one-of-a-kind item. Treated properly, this quilt will become a family heirloom!
