Amish and English Quilts at the Lockport Gallery Illinois

On Wednesday we visited this quilt exhibition at the Lockport Gallery which is part of the Illinois State Museum. Each Amish quilt is paired with an 'English' (non Amish) quilt.

There are lots of photos of the quilts on their facebook page but I have included my two favourites below. They are both Amish Quilts made in Illinois but much more colourful than the usual Amish quilts.

I like them because of their liberated style!
