Amish-made quilts in PA’s Garden Spot

Lancaster Amish QuiltA thriving cottage industry of quilt-making exists in the Amish settlement of Lancaster and Chester Counties in southeastern Pennsylvania. The Amish tradition of quilt-making is one that has been passed down among Amish women through the decades. Though not all Lancaster Amish women are quilters, new generations of quilt artists continue to learn the old techniques of stitching, knitting, and quilting. These skills capture Amish identity in a symbol recognizable worldwide, carrying with it a trace of the culture and heritage of the Amish people.

Amish quilts are made by single craftswomen, or more often in tandem with others. With the rise of quilting as a business, some Lancaster County Amish craftswomen farm out work to others, such as the piecing or applique work, in order to produce quilts more efficiently and at a more reasonable cost.

Reflective of the large amount of work that goes into each piece, full-size Amish-made quilts typically fetch $1000 or more. Smaller size quilts, wall hangings and crib quilts can be had for significantly less.

Amish hand-made quilts traditionally come in simple dark or bold colors, and characteristic geometric shapes and patterns.  Classic designs include the Tumbling Blocks, Lone Star, Center Diamond, and Wedding Ring quilts.  However many Amish women have begun crafting quilts outside of the classic designs to appeal to a more contemporary market.




There are many Amish quilts shops in Pennsylvania concentrated in the Lancaster County area within easy reach of Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, Wilminton DE, and other cities in the region (see listings below).  You can also view other PA Amish quilt shops
