Quilt name: Diamond-in-the-Square
Lancaster, Pennsylvania, c. 1920
Amish families arrived in America from Germany in the 1700s, settling in the Lancaster area of Pennsylvania. While they didn’t have a quilting heritage, they quickly adapted and took it on as their own. Amish quilts are typically associated with bright colors, simple blocks, and fabulous hand quilting.
