Inspiration: Amish Quilt Book

After listening to this podcast by Pat Sloan with Julie Silber, I rushed right over to Amazon and ordered the out of print book, Amish, The Art of the Quilt.

It's based on the Esprit Amish quilt collection that I've heard about for years, but never had the opportunity to see.  Below are a couple of my favorites:

 What an amazing (and amazingly heavy!) book! 


  1. Oh, I love this book so much! It's one of my prize possessions.

  2. I believe many of the Amish quilts from the Esprit collection are now housed in the Lancaster Quilt & Textile Museum, (which is near where I live).

    I saw them a few years ago when they first purchased the collection, and if you are ever in my neck of the woods, I'll be happy to take you!
