Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
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.

February 2014 Quilter's Digest
This book is a sequel to An Amish Adventure which introduced quilters to Amish quilting. Some of the quilts here use traditional 19th century patterns, while others are modern takes on Amish ideas. Designed by some of today's leading quilters, these easy to make quilts show off their simplicity, their geometry and the beautiful solid fabrics of the past and present.
