Reviews - What do customers think about Quilts Among the Plain People (People's Place Booklet No. 4))?

Quilts Among the Plain People  Jan 12, 2007
I was disappointed with this book - perhaps I had misread what it was about. Firstly it is in black and white on quite ordinary paper. I was expecting a tutorial book but found this leant more to the history of Quilting in the Amish community. Perhaps this might be acceptable to someone who had not heard of the Amish people and their association with quilts.
Great Info  Nov 10, 2006
Very interesting book. I was not disappointed in the least when I received it. Would recommend it for any quilter.
Quilts among the Plain People  Mar 31, 2005
An introduction to a quieter, simpler way of living. Photographs of Amish & Mennonite landscapes graphically depict the source of their traditional designs. Everyday aspects of life find their way into quiltmaking. Not a how-to-quilt book as much as an interpretation of nature into artform. Ever wonder how those quilts got their names and inspiration? This little book will inform you and encourage you to use creativity in your own life.
small innocuous tourist pamphlet  Feb 28, 2004
No color, no patterns, no quilt specifics. Just general Amish-info. Mostly talks about present-day quilting for sales to tourists, polester batts and poly-cotton fabrics, as though more traditional quilts are just history.
If you're a quilter, spend a few dollars more to own intriguing and satisfying books -- e.g, *****Amish Crib Quilts from the Midwest: 90 color photos which clearly show every great color combination and quilting pattern + dimension, date, fabric info, etc. Any quilt pictured can go straight to big-bed size w/ application of a little arithmetic. Also gives us a new appreciation of cotton chambrays & simple warm baby quilts.
