Description

Quilts are testaments to the ingenuity of Amish women, who historically had few acceptable creative outlets due to religious beliefs decreeing that objects must serve a utilitarian purpose. This example with a sawtooth border and black background is emblematic of Amish quilts from the Ohio region.
