I am not a quilter but do love the beautiful handmade quilts made by the Amish that are famous in Lancaster County. But if I was a quilter this book would be very interesting.Although it it copyrighted in 1935, it does not have the look of an old book--no yellowing. There are black and white photos of the examples of different quilts among all the information. Sorry, no dust jacket. A must-see book for any one who is a quilter!
