A Treasury of Amish Quilts Jun 25, 2000
This book is a treasure of Amish quilts. It is strictly a picture history of quilts, with a short introduction into the world of the Amish quiltmaker. I have this in my quilt library to sit and simply look at beautiful quilts. I would recommend it as a gift, which is how I received it.
