Class Description: Amish quilts are the original modern quilts, made in bold colors and from graphic geometric designs. In this class, students will work from their choice of five traditional Amish patterns (each with variations) while learning about Amish colors, patterns and quilting designs. Most students will be able to finish one small quilt top in class. With all the wonderful solid fabrics now available, it is time to finally make your own Amish quilt!
