Dress weight wools

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Made during the classic period for Amish quilts (1880 - 1950), this Diamond is all lightweight wools and beautifully hand quilted. 

Amish quilts are as distinct from American mainstream quilts as is their costume, religious practices, and so many other Amish customs.


Compare this, in your mind, with "Grandmother's Flower Garden," a wildly popular design made by women of the majority American culture in the 1930's.  See the last photo, a 30's Flower Garden made in California.


The simplicity of design in Amish quilts is only enhanced by the masterful, elaborate hand quilting, executed in non-contrasting thread, and providing a subtle and reticent embossed quality.
