Overview

Prized by collectors the world over, Amish quilts are beloved for their simple beauty and enduring grace. You can recreate these lovely quilts at home, even if you are a beginning quilter. Ten of the most popular Amish quilt designs are included in this oversized, fully-illustrated book, along with cutting guides listing fabric requirements and measurements, reusable pattern templates, trace-off quilting motifs, and complete instructions for cutting, stitching and marking. Interposed among the quilt designs are fascinating features on Amish history and culture, as well as some 300 color photographs showing the quilting techniques you'll employ and scenes of Amish life. In addition to the traditional Bars and Center Diamond patterns, you'll find such creative modern designs as the Lancaster Rose, Sunshine and Shadow, Schoolhouse, Shoo-Fly, Nine-Patch and others, each reflecting the peace, simplicity and humility that are at the core of Amish values.
