Since the late 1960s, the geometric piecework quilts made by the Amish have been much sought after by art collectors and art museums. This stunning volume includes color plates of 74 quilts, accompanied by essays describing both the quiltmaking process and the ways in which Amish quilts embody the important social and religious values of the communities where they were made. This beautifully produced and scholarly (but not staid) look at a living craft tradition will appeal to many readers. Quiltmakers will be especially interested in Joe Cunningham's essay on the color choices and construction details for several quilts. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
