Reviews - What do customers think about World Of Amish Quilts?
Good book but not what I thought Dec 19, 2006
I ordered this book as part of my mother's Christmas present. In all fairness, the information about the book did not indicate that it included templates, so I really couldn't deduct any stars for that. I just presumed it included the templates. The pictures are truly beautiful as are the quilts. Mom's pretty smart, so she'll figure out the pattens. I read Beverly Lewis's novels about the Amish, so seeing some of the patterns she has mentioned in her books was great. I even learned what Shoo-fly pie is.
What a BEAUTIFUL American Craft Treasure-Trove! Nov 12, 2003
For the color photos alone, this book is a work of art!
WOW! What a collection! It's great even as a "coffee table book" or art book, much more for those who are interested or involved in actual quilt-making or collecting.
Some of the patterns are striking! It's even better than the Antiques Roadshow to be able to find all these quilts/photos in one handy reference. Amish values have a lot to teach the rest of us, and this amazing craftmanship is one of them!
The chapters (found nowhere else!): Color Among the Amish, Quilts in the Life Cycle, Excerpts from a Grandmother's Diary, A Quilting, Contentment Within Limitations, Readings and Sources, Index.
