This expertly constructed traditional Amish quilt has never been used. In the custom of the Amish, it is machine-pieced and expertly hand-quilted. The border has a quilted cable design with eight-pointed stars; the grid design is quilted linked tulips. The perfectly regular hand quilting is at 9 stitches per inch. This quilt, an estate piece, was found in Southern Michigan, where many Amish communities still thrive. This quilt, vintage but not antique, made around 1975-1990. The fabrics are cotton and cotton blends. The maroon against black top is combined with a bright blue backing. The Amish, a Plain People, use no printed fabrics in their quilts, only solids. This quilt's design is called "Tree of Life." The quilt is washable in cold water and may be dried in the dryer on a cool setting. (It does not need cleaning at this time; it is pristine.) The quilt measures 70" wide by 86" long and is shown over a full-sized bed. This dark dramatic quilt could be hung or displayed effectively with either a country decor, or a Modernist one. This one is a classic.
