AMISH SUNSHINE AND SHADOW ANTIQUE QUILT, wool, green border

One of the three iconic designs from the Lancaster County, PA.  Amish community, their earliest settlement in the U.S.

This is an exemplary representation of that group's aesthetic--made with fine wool, in brilliant color, sewn with fine quilting in classic patterns, and with a gossamer lightweight batting.

The absence of corner blocks is a format called 'floating', that reflects the pared down, graphic composition of minimalist design that is a sought-after hallmark of early Lancaster County composition.

We have several examples of Amish Sunshine and Shadow quilts, so please ask to see others.
