About as extravagant a true Amish quilt as you will find. Amish colors, all cotton, nine-patch in nine-patch block, and an abundance of interesting quilting coupled with excellent piecework and fine stitching -- Wow! Made by an Lancaster County Amish women.

The other quilt uses blues, purples, reds etc. This quilt is just slightly smaller than the other. This one is called Amish Shadows 2. It is 46 x 56 inches. It is impressive hung on a wall. By using so many different colors in a quilt it makes it adaptable to any decor…
