CONLL4 Amish Nine Patch Quilt
72 x 74 inches
Lancaster County, PA
There is no question that this quilt was made in Lancaster County ...we
know this because of the "signature" Lancaster Amish corner squares. The
fabrics used to create this nine patch quilt are a combination of fine
wools and cotton. It shows a double border and a double set of corner
The outer border of this classic quilt is 10-1/2” wide with an
additional 1” binding....very typical Amish. There are some attributes
that you see in all Amish quilts; the two of these, right off the top of
my head is that their quilts are always machine pieced and always have a
flat binding. On this quilt the corner squares are almost 11” square.
The inner border measures 4” in width with the inside corner blocks
measuring 4” square. The nine patch blocks measure apx 5-1/2” and are
comprised of 1-5/8” squares. The outside border is quilted with an
unusual floral and lineal design. The inner border is similar but joins
each motif with a leaf and vine design. The inner body is diagonally
cross hatch quilted in a 1-1/2” grid. The solid peach backing is the
same fabric that was used to line the English women's clothing.
This wonderful example of a Lancaster County Quilt is ready for you to
see in your home on approval.
