Amish quilts have risen from obscurity within a relatively closed religious community to become recognized within America as works of art--and, as noted by esteemed art critic Robert Hughes in 1997, precursors to American abstract paintings. Smucker examines Amish quilt making within the history of American quilt making, and within Amish culture and religion.
