The Amish women make some of the most beautiful quilts in the world. They provide income for their families by selling their quilts that are also a form of artwork. The price they get depends on the style, the amount of hand stitching, and the size.

How enjoyable... I MISS quilting! For the last 6 months or so, I've had the quilting bug back again! Time for a NEW one! My bed is a KING size, though! I could do a Lap Quilt! Maybe that's what I'll do! For ME! In my chair! That's the answer! A Lap Quilt! I can physically handle that better, too! YEP! Lap Quilt, here I come! Now, to think of a pattern!
Amish woman quilting - Quilts are created for everyday use or to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, raising funds for the church or community cause. Since the “English” (the name for non-Amish people) discovered Amish work in the late 1960s, quilting has become a source of income for many. Their quilts have become collectors’ items all over the world.
