OUR MODERN QUILTING HERITAGE

BOLD COLORS. SOLID FABRICS. STRIKING GEOMETRIC DESIGNS.

Those descriptors have been applied to modern quilts. But they also characterize Amish quilts, in particular the Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, style that were originally made 100 years ago—or more. To see modern quilts and Amish quilts together allows the viewer to witness bridges across the history of quilting, revealing a synergy between the styles.

Luckily, visitors to QuiltCon this year will have the opportunity to do just that, as an elite selection of antique Lancaster County quilts from the Esprit Collection will be on display, on loan from LancasterHistory in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
