Amish Quilt – design from Marti Mitchell.

 

This describes a style of quilt particular to the Amish people.  The Amish quilts are often made from traditional patterns with stunning solid colored fabric.  These quilts are sewn by hand and are usually heavily quilted.

Today many Amish communities sell quilts to tourists passing through their towns.  They also having traveling “trunk shows” where they sell Amish made quilts.

The quilt in the photo was made from a design by Marti Mitchell.  This quilt has minimal quilting unlike most Amish quilts.
