Janice Tauer Wass

Publication Date: 

Discover the beauty and diversity of Illinois Amish quilts in this historical overview, featuring sixty quilts, most of which have never been published before. The book surveys a wide range of styles, including early handwoven wool quilts, "classic" Amish quilts, one-patch quilts, and medallion and framed quilts. These quilts are some of the best documented Amish quilts in the country and information about the makers has allowed connections to be made between family quilts that illustrate the sharing of "threads of tradition."
