Patchwork Quilts

It is hard to imagine that patchwork quilts could be so wondrously varied in design and coloring as they are here in Lancaster. While some traditional Amish designs are made to be reproductions of 18th and 19th Century quilts, most quilts are created with goal of being more lovely than what was made before. Consequently there are many differing and unique renditions of even the most traditional patchwork patterns.

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 galleries, there is a lot to see. We try to show respects for the quilts and the quilters by properly showing them.

  • Nothing boring about this eclectic quilt with its vibrant red, blue and yellow prints. Look at the fabrics used on the cabin on the pillow fold!

  • Razor sharp! Terrific fabrics in shades of blue (from almost pastel to navy) and shades of brick red. Look at the blocks that are filled with expanses of excellent quilting. Also note the unusual “saw-tooth” border. Well constructed as well as well designed. This quilt is symmetrical and may be used sideways on a king size bed.
  • Great colors — mauves and subtle greens (teals and very black forest green). The sharp edges of the leaves contrast nicely with the right angles of the Log Cabin blocks.

  • The combination of a very clean design by Judy Martin and interesting quilting makes this quilt special. Note how well the tulip block pattern is integrated with the lone star.

This quilt was designed so that it could be used sideways on a king-size bed. Pattern available in Shining Star Quilts by Judy Martin.
  • The simple Garden Shadow pattern is a pleasant foil to the extravagant amount of quilting applied to this quilt.
