A treasury of Mennonite quilts (Book, 1992) []

The wholecloth backing is an exquisite 1890s fabric in a minuscule print of black, green, and white. This Lancaster County Amish Trip Around the World is both brilliant and dynamic. All seams are machine pieced, typical of an Amish quilt, and the binding is put on by machine then secured in back by hand. The binding is a typical 1 inch machine applied royal blue binding.

Traditional quilts are made by layering a whole quilt top with full-sized batting and backing.

A treasury of Amish quilts (1990 edition)

As with most all Amish quilts, the quilt pieces are machine joined and exquisitely hand quilted. After the fabric is bought, the quilt pieces are cut out pieced together and sewn in place with a manually operated sewing machine. When she introduced the idea of an African-themed quilt to the other quilters at her guild, Waterloo County Quilters Guild,she soon discovered that many of her fellow quilters had connections to Africa as well. It has a purple border. This quilt is both a tribute to the beauty of Africa and an expression of the desire to do more to address the suffering of the people.

Gazing at this quilt, while it was hanging, I am drawn into the center of the quilt, almost in an optical illusion way. This is a true mint quilt which means never used and never washed. Some quilts follow traditional patterns; others are simply one-of-a-kind.
