There are patterns (templates and instructions) for 80 quilts, but the book would be worth it just for the quilt photographs (of collectible older Amish quilts). The colors and design are fabulous -- this is really an art book as much as a quilting book.
In addition, there are essays describing aspects of Amish life, with photographs to illustrate, and an attempt is made to connect the patterns on the quilts with the features and landscape of Amish life -- the center diamond, for example, is compared to a field waiting to be harvested as viewed from a certain angle.
I will treasure this book for years to come and plan to make some quilts using it.

I recommend this book to any experienced or inexperienced quilter--especially those who are interested in the Amish people. It has excellent, easy to follow patterns that are all about the same size, and it includes some beautiful quilting designs that are also easy to follow and easy to use. The ideas for color schemes and traditional Amish patterns are very useful. I especially liked the way pictures were included in order to illustrate the origins of certain quilt designs. For instance, a picture of a barn window is included with the pattern that represents a barn window. I found the religious themes in the book, and in the quilts themselves, very interesting. I really enjoyed using this book, and I am very satisfied with the quilt that I made using the patterns and designs provided in the book. This book is a helpful guide to quiltmaking, and the cultural information it includes is a very interesting supplement to anyone interested in quilt history or Christianity.

Very nice book and my copy is in great condition. The photos and explanations are very good---for their time. Quilting has come so far since this book was written, and it's much easier now.

For example, the book give templates for piecing log cabin blocks...I don't know anyone who would use templates for that now---you just cut strips, sew them accurately, press as you go, and whack them off with a rotary cutter. There are so many wonderful tools and neat tricks now that it's much easier to piece these beauties. I know for a fact the many Mennonite ladies now use these tools...

That being said, this is a charming book, and I believe, a good addition to my library. It's inspirational and a great thing to grab when I sit down to take a coffee break. I recommend it.
