The simple, geometric shapes and colors of Amish quilts produce an infinite variety of dramatic, vibrant combinations. Once made only for family use and gifts, Amish quilts are now prized by the outside world. The Amish quilt featured on this stamp is a traditional design from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, the first in a Postal Service series, "American Treasures."
