Amish Quilt: Center Square


Although Midwestern Amish quilts were typically made of cotton, this fine example is of deep hues of purple and brown with black inner frames in wool. Traditionally hand-quilted in black thread are feather, wreath, parallel line and shell patterns, skillfully stitched. Backing of plain muslin.
