Kevin, You have seen many authentic Amish Quilts. Do you honestly think an Amish Woman made these quilts? They just say a first name. I have never seen those kind of designs in Amish ladies quilts.
Salli, I didn't look at the design very closely....I figured we might have some quilt connoisseurs here who'd look at it closer....I was more commented that I have seen monochromatic quilts like that made by Amish ladies but I didn't really pay attention to the design. Either way, if I were going to spend that much on a quilt, I think I'd want to meet Ida in person! (someone might say, "gee, what difference does it make who Ida is if you like the quilt")...but I do think an "Amish made" quilt does at a premium to it, hence the $1200 price tag....
