This new reference book examines the common features of quilts made by the Amish in America and the Welsh in Britain. More than 90 images show colorful combinations and design repertoire that provide a possible cross-cultural link. Today Amish quilts are seen both as an art form and a symbol of the values they hold near and dear: controlled order, simplicity of design, and discreet ornamentation. Did Welsh immigrants help to influence this? Noted quilt historian Dorothy Osler presents evidence that the Amish and Welsh communities lived side-by-side in the early to mid-19th century, when Amish quiltmaking began in the United States. If you’re a history buff or lover of quilts, you will appreciate the historic background of these two groups of people and the care and beauty that went into making each quilt.
