The Amish began to quilt as a way for frugal housewives to use leftover scraps of material and fabrics. However, not only did these “frugality” quilts serve a functional purpose, they became a work of art and a major form of entertainment for women. Quilts reflect the sober Amish lifestyle, their humility and sense of community. Many times groups of Amish and Mennonite women gather for a quilting bee. The bee is a form of socialization and relaxation for these women. It’s a time when they can get together to visit and “catch up” with one another once their household duties have been completed.
Amish quilts are known for their simple and striking designs and their intricate quilting. While Amish quilts began solely as practical objects within the Amish lifestyle – they were usually made simply for warmth or for gifts or dowry items – they have evolved over time and are now regarded as works of art by people around the world.
