Says Tom: “Maddy has a bed to display her quilts and will fold down the next one in the pile to show customers.  I think that she must have 60 in stock.”

On Amish Quilts

For those interested in the topic, there’s a very nice fairly recent book called Amish Abstractions: Quilts from the Collection of Faith and Stephen Brown, about the history and design of Amish quilts, and the phenomenon of them becoming popular in the general public.

In addition to 3 interesting essays, the book features many brilliant photos of Amish quilts dating to the 1800s, from Pennsylvania, Ohio, and other states.  I’ve enjoyed learning about the regional differences and traditions in quilt design.  It’s a great book to have for the quilt aficionados out there or anyone who’d like to learn more on the topic of Amish quilts.
