America’s Quilt Capital is Lancaster County, PA

Amish women in Pennsylvania Dutch Country have been creating exquisite handmade quilts since the mid-1800s (and perhaps earlier). Partially born out of frugality, Amish-made quilts serve a practical purpose as a blanket. Quilting also serves as an entertaining social gathering for Amish women and girls in Lancaster County.

Groups of Amish and Mennonite women traditionally gather for a “quilting bee”. What’s a quilting bee? In addition to being a productive time dedicated to quilting, it’s a time to talk with one another.

More recently, what was once a social gathering has turned into a business enterprise for many “plain” (Amish and Mennonite) women. Cottage industries of quilt-makers are springing up throughout Amish Country in Pennsylvania. Many Amish and Mennonite women have opened up small quilt shops in their homes to subsidize the family’s income. While traveling throughout Lancaster, PA, it’s common to see a handmade sign stating simply: “Quilts Sold Here,” which is often accompanied by “No Sunday Sales.”

In addition, homemade quilts are a popular item at the infamous “Mud Sales” that take place throughout Lancaster County, PA in late winter and early spring. You’ll find handmade quilts below.

Traditional Amish quilts/blankets come in all different shapes, patterns, and sizes. Some are bed quilts (king size, queen size, etc), others are antique quilts that people hang on their walls (“wall-hanging quilts“). Each patchwork quilt is unique because they’re made by hand.

How much do Amish quilts cost? It varies, but they typically cost anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars.
