Amish Quilt Patterns Aug 3, 2007
Arrived fast, perfect condition. Excellent people to do business with, would definitely deal with them again.
A classic, One of the best resources I have in my library!! Jul 8, 1997
Rachel Pellman excells in being plain, simple and concise. This book includes not only the patterns for making the blocks but quilting designs as well for the complete Amish look. The patterns are in black and white allowing them to be easily photocopied and colored by the experimenting quilter. The assembly instructions are precise and are shown as diagrams making it easy to see and copy each desired block. I find it an invaluable tool and resource for my library. In fact this book is the most used of all my quilting books. While this book is a rare find it is well worth the time to find and use. I highly recommend it particularly for the beginning quilter although the more experience quiltmaker will find much of value here too. Patterns range from the simple Bars and Center Diamond to the complex Star, Rolling Rock,and Jacob's Ladder. This book contains enough patterns to keep quilters busy for years
