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.
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.
