Amish-Inspired Quilts for Today's Home

Noted quilt designer Carl Hentsch has always admired Amish quilts and quilters. Living only a short distance from an old-order Amish community has allowed him to explore their world and come to know and respect some of these quilters and their ability to create beautiful quilts without the use of electricity. Amish-Inspired Quilts for Today's Home explores their use of colour and design in 10 quilts, using modern fabrics and techniques, with projects ranging from easy to challenging. Blocks such as Basket,Log Cabin, and Star fill these pages with bursts and blooms of colour. Be inspired!

About the Author

These ten quilts have blocks set against a plain background. Many quilts can be made in varying sizes from cot to king size. One quilt has foundation pieced blocks. The cutting charts can take up to 2 pages. After cutting, each piece must labeled as they are only referred to as 'N square' or 'Y triangle.' Some pieces have to be cut at 45 and 60 angles with a ruler. The assembly instructions and diagrams are very clear but need careful reading. These are complex designs requiring great accuracy. It is a patchwork book only, there are no references to quilting. British Patchwork & Quilting, Issue 22
