Amish Colors Quilts

Amish “plain” clothing is made with solid (usually dark) fabric that is black, or from the green, red, blue, purple part of the “color wheel” (no yellow or orange). Amish-colored quilts use these fabrics along with solid white and off white (light tan — sometimes called tea-stain, or paper-bag!). Most of these quilts use traditional designs along with traditional coloring. The quality of the quilting sets these quilts apart. to enable highest quilting a thin batting is traditionally used. We are very careful to show and offer only top quality very well made quilts.

Some of the quilts shown here are marked indicating that they are “available now” for shipment –we are usually able to ship quilts so marked no later than the next business day. Other quilts shown have been sold, but often we are able to find a very similar well-made quilt that can be shipped quickly. Alternatively we can arrange for a similar quilt to be custom made.
