Format: Paperback
Illustrated with full-color photographs on every page, Amish Quilts Of Lancaster County is a gorgeous showcase of its title. Brief text introductions ground the reader in Amish quiltmaking history and techniques, but the majority of Amish Quilts Of Lancaster County is effectively a textile artbook, showcasing the quilts themselves in all their bold color and down-to-earth patterns. Most sample quilts are shown in an overall photograph, a detail photograph, and a photograph of the quilt's back. A truly beautiful sampling, and a joy for avid quiltmakers and quilt aficionados to simply page through.

This is a fine exploration of Amish quilting. The book gives detailed information on each of the quilts shown, including stitches per inch, along with photographs of the backs of each quilt.

These book contains many photos of Amish quilts with explanations. I know that this museum will be closed in next days because the house where the museum is must be sent. I've buy these book to keep all the quilts in my memory. I hope a new building will be find for the museum.

My family originates from Lancaster County, so I have always felt drawn to the beautiful colors and patterns of Amish quilts. This book is filled with gorgeous images that depict the entire quilt as well as closeups of the stitching, quilting, binding or other special features. It is a very enjoyable to browse and enjoy. However, if you are looking for quilt patterns you need to know that this book doesn't have any patterns in it.

I had expected the book to give directions for making Amish quilts. It is more of a referance book, showing early Amish quilting. Nice pics, but not what I had expected
