These fine Amish Quilts display the love for the rural heavens which the Amish and Mennonite Quilters have. The great Lone Star Amish Quilt, also known as the Bethlehem Star Amish Quilt, makes a stunning display of vibrant color. The intricate piecing of the many different fabric pieces along with precise handquilting creates a classic Amish Quilted masterpiece. The Mariners Star Quilt is also known as the Compass Star, and speaks of the love of freedom that is inherant in the Plain Peoples rural life, with the pieced work celebrating the road to the north. We also have Amish Quilts in the patterns Stars in Common, Broken Star and Starspin which reflect the expanse of heavens that make up the Amish country sky. Amish girls start learning to quilt at a young age, but every year fewer Amish Girls participate as the modern world encroaches into their lives.
The Log Cabin Quilt pattern is one of the most recognized Amish Quilt patterns. It bring to our mind the pioneering America of 200 years ago, with her spirit, courage and sense of adventure. There are many variations of this classic pattern, such as Courthouse Steps Amish Quilt, Broken Star Log Cabin Amish Quilt and Log Cabin Fan Amish Quilt. We have Amish Quilts in the pattens of Mariners Compass Log Cabin and Log Cabin Star Quilts which capture the importance of the guiding star during the long journey through the rugged countryside, and also the longing of the pioneer woman to set down roots and build her log home. These Log Cabin Amish Quilts celebrate the best of American life, and will bring to your home a vibrancy of color in a classic quilting design. The good old days are gone and the Amish way of life is slowly disappearing due to the costs and rules the modern world puts on them, so get a piece of history in your Amish Quilt while they exist.

When it comes to embroidery, the Amish do a fantastic job. See the fine detail of their hand embroidery in these quilts, usually a cross-stitch style, but also it may be done using crewel work. You will see the art of traditional hand quilting in each of these Amish Quilts. Many many hours are spent creating these quilted treasures. Those hours spent result in a wonderful victorian style that will remind everyone of the old home style.

These Amish Quilts are set apart from all others by their topical unique designs. Originally, the Sampler Quilts were pieced by many women (to be made into one bedquilt for a wedding gift for a community member). Today, these Sampler Quilts are a special way for an experienced patchwork Amish quilt artist to display a larger variety of color blends and patterns. These Amish Samplers fill the room with a real feeling of history and purpose. These Amish Quilts show a art that you can never grow tired of seeing! Each quilt is different and will never be made again, the fabrics can never be purchased again, and the quilters too are slowly getting older and are not being replaced by the younger Amish girls in great numbers.
