Editorial Reviews

Review

"Granick has taken the quilts-many of which look op-art modern-out of the realm of the strictly artistic and given them a history." -The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Tradition and photography are artfully intertwined in this highly accomplished book." -Antiques Today

About the Author

     
     Eve Granick's interest in the Amish began in the mid-1970s when she traveled throughout the Midwest with her antique dealer husband, David Wheatcroft, in search of Amish quilts. Buying and selling Amish quilts let to collecting them, and inevitably to a curiosity about the milieu in which they were produced. Eve grew up in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, and recieived a B.F.A. from Washington University, St. Louis, and a M.F.A. for the University of Iowa, Iowa City. She lives in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.

As a serious collector of Amish quilts, and a textiles professor who also does research on the topic, I am so glad that this book is in print. So many of the others on Amish quilts show the quilts without the cultural context. The cultural and religious context is briefly presented in this book, which is a departure from most of the others.

I've bought, read, or browsed through many books on this subject. Granick's book on Amish quilts is the most comprehensive and fascinating I've seen. A delight to read. A delight to the eyes. I recommend it highly.

I highly reccommend this book to anyone interested in Amish quilts. The pictures are gorgeous and the historical text is fascinating. I bought an antique quilt 2 years ago and was told it came from a farm auction in an Amish community in Iowa. As it is a double wedding ring pattern with a multitude of small print calicos and pink backing I dismissed the idea that it was of Amish origin. However, after reading about quilts from Iowa and their use of patterned fabrics I am thrilled to think that it probably is Amish.
A wonderful book!
