Read an Excerpt

Antique Amish quilts are more than bedcovers. They are testaments to the place of beauty in the Amish community. They are bold witnesses to these women's utter pleasure in creation, their regard for color, these women's willingness to experiment with design, and their capacity for disciplined detail.

Known for their serious and deliberate approach to life, the Amish exhibit their respect for discipline in the quilts they make--in their careful assembling of quilt patches, in the precision and evenness of their quilting stitches, in the dramatic pairing of light and dark fabrics.

Most of these quilts were made by mothers, grandmothers, and aunts for the special young people in their lives. While the Amish are traditionally restrained in their expression of affection, these quilts carry legacies of love--through their lush quilting, their rich color, the strength of their designs.
