This deluxe, authoritative work by a leading expert on Amish quilts has become a classic. The text is the most comprehensive treatment of the subject ever published. Topics include the origin and beliefs of the Amish, historical development of the Amish quilt, and choices of fabric in Old Order quilting. Throughout the book, color photos of the quilts burst from the pages. Truly beautiful! The Amish Quilt draws together the body of available information about the Amish and their textile traditions. Much of what is presented here comes from interviews and conversations with Amish families and with people whose lives have touched the Amish community. Research in county courthouse records and public libraries provided other valuable data and insight. Finally, there is the information based on seeing these quilts in Amish homes, watching them come out of blanket chests or off beds. When women were asked about the age or history of their quilts they had much to say. By listening to their stories, handling thousands of quilts, examining fabrics and comparing quilts made in different communities, we can begin to develop a larger sense of the Amish and their quilts. -Eve Wheatcroft Granick
