The text accompanying this image in the October 1978 issue of House and Garden magazine read, “The vivid colors of Amish quilts—often the only decorating to be found in Amish homes—are all the color this modern, light-filled room needs. Hung like contemporary paintings in Mr. and Mrs. Richard Haders’s city apartment, they enliven a setting designed… to show off their dazzling geometrics.” Graphically displayed Amish quilts frequently appeared in shelter and interior design magazines throughout the 1970s and 80s, emphasizing these objects’ growing reputation and their ability to look great in modern settings.
