About the Author

Sewing has been a constant in Lynn's life ever since her mother taught her to sew when she was old enough to sit at a sewing machine. Lynn has worked in a number of careers, but was thrilled to finally settle down with quilting in the 1990s. Lynn works in a variety of styles and loves experimenting with new ideas, materials, and techniques. She works full-time editing quilting books and teaches a variety of surface design and quilting classes. Her quilts have appeared in books, magazines, and local and national quilt shows.

Reviews

The use of solid fabrics and the focus on geometric designs make Amish and Amish-style quilts appealing to both traditional and modern quilters. Published in honor of C&T Publishing s 30th anniversary, this compilation revisits the subject of An Amish Adventure, the company s first title. Though many of the quilts here are not made by the Amish and don t strictly follow the Amish way of design, the emphasis on solids and the intricate technique (often by machine, here, instead of by hand) are typical of Amish tradition. There s also plenty of information about color; because only solids are used, the colors, rather than the prints, provide the visual interest. VERDICT The Amish way of life is fascinating to many, and this exploration of Amish quilting traditions through contemporary fabrics will appeal to quilters of all styles. --Library Journal; 9/18/13
