"From the Publisher:" Following in the tradition of their top-selling The World of Amish Quilts, the Pellmans have created A Treasury of Amish Quilts, a collection of jewel-like quilts, gathered from Amish communities throughout the United States and Ontario, Canada. Extensive captions detail the date and settlement from which each quilt came and highlight its particular features of interest. A summary chart gives identifying characteristics of quilts from each major Amish community. One chapter includes comments from contemporary Amish quilters about their love of quilting. 8 1/2 x 11 128 pages paperback.
A rich collection of colorful quilts gathered from Amish communities. What reviewers say "A treasury indeed, this book has 179 excellent color photographs of quilts in patterns most favored by Amish women in Ohio, Indiana, and Lancaster and Mifflin Counties in Pennsylvania, before 1940." American Quilter "A chart showing distinctive features of Amish quilts, comparing the color, fabric, and quilting techniques of various communities, is included. Recommended." Library Journal "It's a book to return to often for inspiration and even meditation." The Chattanooga Times "All quilts in the book are shown in color, the quality of which is excellent. That extreme care was observed during photography is evident; even the most intricate quilting design can be clearly seen. A Treasury of Amish Quilts will be a most valuable addition to any quilter's bookshelf."Creative Quilting
