Amish & Mennonite antique quilts range from the very sophisticated to true folk art. The various, and divergent, communities that make up the Amish across America each have their own quilt characteristics among their many common attributes. These antique quilts were made using mostly cottons, wools, and wool challies. Amish antique quilts are known for their solid colors, strong graphics, geometric designs and exquisite quilting. Amish stumpwork quilts would be considered folk art as well.

Quilt characteristics that may be particular to one group are discussed below the image of each quilt. Mennonite antique quilts differ in the fabric choices made; many were created with calicoes, plaids, and stripes, in addition to solid colors. To Amish quilters, the only acceptable use for a non-solid fabric would have been for the quilt backing.

CONJE44 Early Abstract Amish Quilt
c.1900-1920
63 x 79 inches
Illinois
$4,400

A lot of individuals think of Lancaster, PA Amish quilts before those created in other states. This early Amish quilt looks as if it could enter the catagory of modern art! Actually it is a true antique, being over 100 years old.

Offered here is an early Illinois Amish quilt created in block design where most blocks are a rendition of a crazy quilt. A selection of very fine fabrics were used in the creation of this abstract Amish quilt. We have fine cotton sateens, fine cottons, flannels, wool challies and more. The fabrics used for the sashing and joining blocks are a high quality cotten sateen.

The quilting designs differ greatly from those used by the Lancaster County Amish. This fabulous early piece, to me, is captivating due to its design, not due to the elaborate quilting of the Lancaster Amish. For some reason we have trouble photographing the true quality of the colors of Amish quilts. We have used here deep blues, deep purples, blacks grays, as well as joining blocks of a deep rich rusty orange. The blocks measure apx 7 x 9-1/2", outside border is 7", binding is 3/8", sashing is 3-1/2".

The wholecloth backing is a heavy, high quality beige pin-striped cotton fabric.

What a wonderfully abstract graphic early Amish quilt, created between 1900 and 1920.

CONBP7 Amish Bars Crib Quilt
CONBP7 Amish Bars Crib Quilt
c.1940
38 x 38 inches
Lancaster County, PA
SOLD

This quilt ia a quintessential Lancaster, PA Amish double corner block Bars Quilt. An original crib quilt so rare that at this point I am unable to find it in any of the numerous Amish quilt books in my home library.

Comprised of wool challies, pieced and quilted beautifully, as most Amish quilts are, we also find hearts quilted into the quilt, sending love to the little baby. The outside border measures approximately 6-1/2" with a 3/4" separately applied binding. Wide bindings are a signature of Amish quilts. The corner blocks measure 6 X 5-1/2" plus the border. The inside corner blocks measure 1-1/4" square. The inside border measures 1-1/4". The outside bars measure 2-1/2", the next bar measures 4", the next bar 3", the center measures 3-1/8" with the bars on the other side of the center bar matching in width.

The backing of the quilt is a gray cotton, as is seen on many Amish quilts. The actual colors of this quilt are a very deep forest green, lavender, lilac, purple, and black. I am listing these colors because I am having trouble photographing this quilt and obtaining accurate colors.

CONJM28 Mennonite Green Optical Illusion Irish Chain Quilt
c.1890
71 x 71 inches
Lancaster County, Pennsylvania
$2,900

To me the shades of green used in the creation of this stunning quilt call out to Irish heritage. Even the wonderful 4" border is in a comforting and unusual Irish plaid. Different quilts emulate different feelings....I feel this specific quilt emulate feelings of comfort, security and warmth....In addition to being stunningly graphic.

Each of the blocks measure 12-1/2" square and are comprised of smaller squares measuring 2". There are joining four square blocks design which completes the creation of the Irish Chain pattern. All blocks are joined with 4" forest green borders that are quilted in a diagonal crosshatch design. The blocks are quilted in a diagonal quilting design which continues through the 4" plaid border. There is a 3/8" separately applied binding in the same Kelly green challie fabric as used in the 2" squares. The wholecloth backing is a very unusual black cotton fabric with off white stripes. All front design fabrics are wools and wool challies. Stitching was completely executed by hand.

This quilt appears never to have been used to the extent that there are a few basting stitches left behind next to the binding. I am happy to send this wonderful mint condition quilt for your at home approval...with free shipping as always for approvals.

CONJE25 Star of Bethlehem Quilt
c.1895
81 x 81 inches
Mennonite from Pennsylvania
$3,900

Just received from twenty years in a private collection this mint condition, graphically wonderful perfectly executed masterpiece, which is ready for a new home.

Mint condition in a quilt means never used and never washed. Before it was washed, one was unable to see the quilting pattern. Washing shrinks the unwashed fabric of an all cotton quilt enough so it beautifully "puckers". As a result the quilting becomes almost three dimensional...when nicely quilted, or in this case extensively quilted! Before washing, this amazing quilt measured 82" X 82". Now this quilt measures 81" X 81". One cannot find an area of the quilt that is not exquisitely and perfectly quilted. Each 2" diamond is quilted all around. The beautiful medium blue areas joining the points are each quilted with a medallion motif or a half medallion motif. All areas in and around these medallions are also beautifully quilted. Some areas are even double lined quilted.

All piecing was executed by machine as is typical of the Amish and Mennonite quilting technique. Obviously it is not due to lack of skill. The 1/4" separately applied binding was added by machine and closed by hand. The wholecloth backing is an exquisite 1890s fabric in a minuscule print of black, green, and white.

This exquisite quilt would fit a queen size bed with 10" over each side or become a truly amazingly graphic piece of art for your wall. When hanging this quilt in a curatorially correct manner, or when placed on a bed, the bottom and sides of this quilt are perfectly straight and will not wave as it does in the photo.

This masterpiece is organically hand washed and ready to be sent for your approval.

Yes...this mint condition Mennonite quilt is a wow! What can I say? When viewing this quilt, it actually took my breath away. Stunningly graphic, and, in every sense of the word, feels to me like modern art, though this Mennonite Bars quilt is over a hundred years old.

This Bars quilt has four red borders... The side red borders measure 5" in width; the top and bottom borders measure 7" in width. There are four colored strips; red, mustard, purpleish pink and teal...The stirps vary in width from 2-1/2 to 2-7/8". These measurements are not obvious and are apparent only with a tape measure. This Mennonite beauty has been packed away in such a manner that it appears never to have been used. The red and white checked backing adds a whimsical touch to this quilt. The strips are pieced by machine. The 1/4 inch separately applied binding is finished by hand.

The creative quilting is spaced an inch apart and is executed using different colored threads and different design patterns. This is a true mint quilt which means never used and never washed. It is ready to be sent for your at home viewing.

CONJE18 Lancaster County Amish Sunshine and Shadow Quilt
c.1945
82 x 82 inches
Lancaster County, PA
$4,800
How graphically wonderful and exciting is this true Lancaster County Sunshine and Shadow quilt. The fabric used in creating this masterpiece dates from circa 1920 to circa 1945. We have cottons and wool crepes combined to make this quintessential Lancaster County quilt. Measuring 82 by 82 inches, with the small squares measuring 1-1/2 inches, the deep rich indigo blue corner squares measuring 12-1/4 inches. The binding is a typical 1 inch machine applied royal blue binding. The four borders measure 12-1/2 inches in a luscious teal. I believe there are 21 different colors used in the creation of the Sunshine and Shadows pattern. The backing is a luscious medium blue, different from anything on the front. All quilting, which is perfect, has been executed using black thread. This Amish quilt has been held in a private collection for decades, and is now ready for a new home. This mint condition quilt (there are one or two pencil point moth holes in one corner) is ready to be sent for your at home approval.

Q9016 Log Cabin Barn Raising...Amish?
c. 1928
78 x 78 inches
Lancaster, PA
$2,800

Rayon is the natural fiber, yet man made rendition of silk. A less expensive version and sometimes more substantial than expensive silk. All of these attributes made it more readily affordable to the majority of families. These colors are the colors the Amish use and the Amish were known to use Rayon fabric. I cannot prove that this quilt is Amish, but I do believe it is. All fabrics on the front are solid colors as were used by the Amish. The backing, also Rayon, is a calico of a green print on black. The Amish were allowed to use prints on the backs of their quilts as the backs were not readily seen and therefore not pretentious.

The contrast between the light rows and the dark rows, to my eyes, causes visually an optical illusion effect which in turn causes the quilt to almost pulsate. This quilt is stunning!

Every color the Amish used is in this quilt...all the adults colors and all the children's colors...We seem to have an entire color range from black to white used in the creation of this piece of art.

A quilt such as this probably was created for Sunday and not to be used. Today we have a captivating piece of art for your wall.

Please ask for more information.

Always sent, at no charge, for your in home approval.

Q9013 Amish Concentric Squares Folk Art Quilt, Log Cabin Variation
c.1865
48 x 74 inches
Big Valley, Pennsylvania
$2,700

A quilt very possibly created during the Civil War era.
This is a very rare and unusual Amish piece that is comprised of early wools and wool challis fabrics, some of which appear to be home woven. The backing fabric of this quilt is a grayish tweedy flannel, an early flannel. The squares created here, using a variation of the Log Cabin pattern, measure 11-1/2 inches. Each log measures approximately 1 inch in width. Yes, this a Log Cabin but an oxymoron because it's so very folksy and it's such an early Amish piece.
This quilt is not only a rare piece but would create an artistically amazing wall hanging. There's a lot of other information that I'd like to share. Please call or email.

Q9232 Log Cabin Straight Furrows Eastern Mennonite Quilt
c.1875
60 x 68 inches
New England
$2,500

This Log Cabin Quilt has one of the smallest chimneys I have ever seen, measuring less than 5/8 inch square. The logs on this quilt measure from 1/2 inch in width up to 3/4 inch in width. There is a brown 3 inch border of which 1/4 inch is a hand applied wool challis binding. The quilt is completely comprised of wools and wool challis. It appears never to have been used. It has a yummy warm brown wool backing with a few moth holes in the backing. Some of the fabric on the back appears to have been home dyed.
It is definitely a Mennonite quilt. I know this because the quilt has a strip pieced backing. Mennonites strip pieced their backings as a symbol of their work. It wasn't because they lacked the fabric and had to piece it, it was a symbol of their creativity. Graphically wonderful, the straight furrows cabin is the original log cabin pattern that came to us from England.
These blocks measure roughly 7 inches square. I see fabrics on here back to about 1840, 1850. There is one fabric pattern here that I have never seen before. It is graphically wonderful. This quilt can be used either for your bed, or as a stunning wall hanging. The colors are magnificent, deep and rich.
This quilt is ready to be sent to you for your approval in your home.

CONDS2 with Sawtooth Inner Border
c.1950
63 x 76 inches
Believed to be from Holmes County, PA
$2,900

This very graphic Cotton Amish Bars quilt will perfectly fit a twin or double size bed. Personally - I think it’s a perfect size for a stunningly graphic wall hanging. Completely created from cotton using the same solid color fabrics as used in making their Amish clothing.
This quilt is comprised of 6 colors, all cotton fabrics, including two shades of black. The outer border measures 7” with the outside 5/8”of the border being the binding of the quilt. The sawtooth edging was created from triangles measuring 2-1/8 x 2-1/2 x 3-3/8” with all pieceing, as usual, done by using a treadle machine. The beautiful hand quilting, in a light colored thread, has nice even and small stitches. The bars have cross hatched 1-1/8” diagonal grids. The 4 inner black strips have been quilted in a chain design. The outer 2 bars have a design that reminds me of a barber’s pole. The sawtooth border is outline quilted and the outer border is arc quilted. The backing is a solid black.
A stunning piece that appears to be unused. We are always happy to send on approval.

CONDS3 Lancaster County Amish Double Nine Patch Quilt
c.1915
85 x 87 inches
Lancaster County, PA
$4,000

This amazing Amish Double Nine Patch quilt has been created with wool crepe blocks on point. Wool crepe quilts are some of the earliest Amish pieces. This quilt consists of a typically wide 1-1/2” taupe binding, 11-1/2” outer dark blue border on three sides and the forth side a greenish blue. There is a 3-1/2" inner red rust border joining the blocks, four 3-1/2 x 3” bold green inner corner squares and four 11 x 11-1/2” magenta inner corner squares. The inner blocks are green, rust, blues, browns, grey and all the other colors of the various adult clothing of that era. One thing that is unusual is the variety (or lack of consistency) of colors. I find this interesting. The back of this quilt is a teal whole cloth. The quilting of vines, grapes, wreaths, cross hatching and hearts are all exquisitly executed. The quilted heart design indicates that this was indeed a wedding gift. Many times these wedding gifts have lasted because they were cherished and not often used. This quilt has a few original moth holes that I’d be happy to restore for the purchaser at no extra charge. The quilt will fit a queen size bed or become an amazingly graphic art piece for your wall. Ready to be sent for your viewing and approval.

Lancaster County, Pennsylvania
$4,900

The true colors seem impossible for me to capture...these are the best we seem to take.
This quintessential Lancaster Amish Bars quilt is comprised of a rich deep coffee, a rich red/burgundy and a deep medium blue. The four border blocks are a signature of the Lancaster Amish quilts. Amish woman in the early part of the 20th century and before used wool as their first choice in fabrics. The fabrics used here are fine wool challis. The exception in fabric type is the cotton whole-cloth backing in a tiny muted check. Amish woman were allowed to use printed, plaid or check fabric for the backings of their quilts. Not seen is not being pretentious.
The Bars on this quilt measure 6" in width with an 11-1/2" outer border and a 2-3/4" inner border which circumvents the inner Bars. Lancaster Amish quilt bindings are typically wide and here measure 1-1/8" in width.
The outer border has an unusual criss crossing wreath pattern and the blue that encircles the bars has a chevron and windmill quilting pattern. Diagonal cross hatching is the pattern chosen for the Bars in a 7/8" grid. Quilting executed in a basket pattern is seen in the four corner blocks.

We are aware that color combinations from the Amish quilts are unique to the Amish since they’re from the limited scope of the colors of their clothing. Comprised of both wool and cotton, this 9 Patch Quilt design is taken to another level due to the 4 corner blocks on the outer and inner borders...only found on Lancaster Amish quilts.. The typical 1” wide binding is an olive green wool which is also used in the creation of the 9 patch blocks. The outer border measures 10-1/2” in width and has a very Lancaster County floral wreath design quilted in all the blue sections. The corner blocks are quilted in a bouquet design held with ribbon. The next border measures 4” in width and quilted the same the way. Each of the 4 corner squares in the inner border are quilted with the same floral design. The main body of the 9 patch has been quilted in a 1-3/8” cross hatch pattern. All piecing has been done by machine and the entire quilt is hand quilted with small even stitches. The backing is a solid pumpkin colored cotton....the Amish could use fabrics different from their clothing for the backs of their quilts. The rust and lavender fabrics are cotton and all the green fabric is wool. Quilts are always sent on approval..

A very old Amish quilt or a piece of Modern Art ?

This Lancaster County Amish Trip Around the World is both brilliant and dynamic. The selection of colors seem to draw one's sight towards the center of the textile. A full array of colors used in children's clothing is used here along with a few of the adult clothing colors. Created from wool crepe and cottons, it appears that this quilt has never been used. The squares measure 3-1/2”, the outside border measures 16” in width (including a 2” binding). The border is quilted in a design of a bouquet of flowers held together by ribbon. A most unusual quilting pattern. The piecing is done with a treadle machine while quilting is executed by hand in small and even stitches. This combination of quilting methods is typical of the Amish. Cross hatching has been created in a 1" diagonal grid resulting in an “x” quilted through each square. The four corner squares measure 14-1/2” and visually let us know that this quilt was definitely created in Lancaster County. Ready for viewing on approval in your home. This quilt will make an amazing statement on your wall or used as bedding.

c.1910
80 x 80 inches
Lancaster County, PA
SOLD

This is a quintessential Lancaster County Amish Quilt. When you ask any lover of Amish quilts what is the quilt they must own, most will say A Diamond in a Square. This early rendition has been created from wool crepe and always from their specific clothing colors. Amish quilts are machine pieced and then exquisitely hand quilted. This piece is no exception. The backing is a late 19th century stripe. It’s acceptable for a stripe to be on the back of the quilt but never on the front as that would look pretentious and not a fabric they would wear. The outside binding is the typical 1” width, the next border is 11-1/2” and quilted with wreaths and stars. The inner border is 4-3/4” in width. The outer block is rich purplish blue, followed by rose, magenta and slate blue. The inner corner triangles are quilted with vines of grapes and tulips. The inner most border is quilted in a modified herringbone and pinwheel. The center diamond in a square has an 7 pointed star, triple line quilted and surrounded by a beautifully quilted wreath. Each corner has a quilted design 6 pointed star. This sophisticated and naturally simple Amish quilt is a major piece of art for your wall or will fit a queen size bed. Ready to send on approval. Please remember that colors aren’t exact when seen on your computer.

CONLL2 Amish Center Square
c. 1895
74 x 85 inches
Lancaster County, PA
SOLD

Stunningly simple, this Amish Quilt is called the center square. In this case antique in age while being modern in design. The center square measures 55” in width and encompasses most of the quilt. Surrounding the center square are three borders: the first is 3-1/8” in width, the second 3-1/4, and the outer border or third border measures 9” in width which includes the 3/4” hand closed binding. As with most all Amish quilts, the quilt pieces are machine joined and exquisitely hand quilted. The center of the center square is quilted with a diamond shaped medallion.... one which I have never previously seen. Radiating from there are angular 1-1/2” cross hatch quilting with meandering wreaths throughout this design. The outer most borders are quilted with chains and shells. One chain stitch resembles a nautical chain...and then a shell design...both unusual for Amish quilting designs. The Center Square pattern represents an early stage in Lancaster County quilt design. Afterwards Amish started creating the Diamond in a Square pattern. I have read that few center squares were made after the 19th century. From that information I would put this one at the tail end of the 19th century. Even though named a Center Square, it is not actually square in formation or size.
