Amish Design catered its products to interior designers, architects, and corporate collections, using marketing materials such as this. The Delagranges designed patterns drawn directly from old quilts, sourced 100% cotton fabrics—when many Amish preferred using synthetics, and used the colors found on dark quilts when many Amish families preferred lighter colors and printed fabrics. Amish Design’s design method worked. Without knowing this quilt’s back story, one could easily mistake it for 1932, instead of 1982.
