Notes: "In this collection is a very early and unusual Lancaster Amish quilt using Nine Patch Blocks in a Bars format...which may point to Lancaster County as the progenitor of the earliest block pattern options; the prototypes for such designs, as for all Lancaster Amish patterns, exist in earlier non-Amish quilts...It must also be remembered that, while they may differ widely in the details of their lives, the basic Amish tenants of belief and practice are consistent group to group, Pennsylvania to the Midwest and beyond. The Application of this constancy to quilt making over a long period thus produced aesthetically integrated bodies of work remarkable for their consistency and quality." (Holstein, "The Aesthetics of Amish Quilts," 106)
