Review: Urban and Amish

URBAN AND AMISH

“This is an interesting idea, taking traditional Amish designs and adapting them using bold modern fabrics. The 8 Amish quilts each have a modern counterpart, 16 quilts altogether.

An Amish quilt with Pineapple blocks is arranged horizontally, each block made with four different coloured fabrics. It’s modern version, called “Chinese Lanterns,” has Pineapple blocks in vertical lines with each block using the same patterned fabric. The two blocks are made with different techniques. ‘Trip around the World’ becomes ‘Trip to New York’ with vertical strips of varying heights. All the quilting designs, both traditional and free motion quilting, are clearly explained.”
