Amish Quilts

Center Diamond, circa 1920-1940, maker unknown.
Quilt was probably made in Lancaster County, PA.
I love Amish quilts not only for their simplicity using vibrant colors but also for their intricate hand quilting.  They truly are a work of art.

Today while browsing around The Quilt Show website, I ran across a wonderful video that showcases some of the most beautiful Amish quilts I have ever seen! 

The quilts shown in this video are from The Espirit Quilt Collection in San Francisco.  The Espirit company is housed in a remodeled wine warehouse which is also the home of this famous quilt collection.

Since I enjoyed watching this so much today, I wanted to share it with you too.  Enjoy!

Until next time ~
