Applique Quilts

At times, we think that our Amish quilters put all their dreams of a less “plain” life into their gorgeous and often flamboyant appliqued quilts. Even after looking closely at hundreds of Lancaster applique quilts we continue to be amazed by the freshness of design and coloring we see in new quilts. We also see a great diversity in quality of applique quilts and limit ourselves to showing and offering only top quality very well made quilts.

Many 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.

Take your time looking through our appliqué gallery, there is a lot to see. We try to show respects for the quilts and the quilters by properly showing them. If you have questions about any quilt, please call or write to us.

  • Truly elegant and the newest design from C Jean Horst designs. Here is a garden of Calla lilies, surrounded with tulips and 3-d rosebuds as well as bunches of delicious looking grapes. This quilt was designed for a customer who loved the Petal Showcase but asked that I use calla lilies in her design. We love it just as much as our customer did. And so we are please to be making more and offering them as a standard quilt in line. This quilt is sold but there will be more being shown in the months ahead.
