Quilts from two Valleys - Amish Quilts From The Big Valley-Mennonite Quilts From The Shenandoah Valley
Publisher: Good Books
A look at the quilts and cultures of two tucked-away religious communities in America.
Two hidden valleys—one in Pennsylvania, the other in Virginia—held vibrant communities and quilting traditions during the closing years of the 19th century and the early decades of the 20th century. How do the quilts made by the Amish and Mennonites in these tucked-away places compare? Includes photographs of richly colorful quilts, and of the two communities from which they come.
