This is Not an Amish Quilt by Janneken Smucker

This month’s puzzle spotlights a quilt titled This is Not an Amish Quilt made by Janneken Smucker of Philadelphia, PA for the 2008 Quilt Alliance contest and auction, My Quilts/Our History.

Based on traditional Amish Bars or Strema pattern; cotton fabrics, organic cotton batting, cotton thread, machine pieced, hand quilted.

Artist’s Statement

I make quilts. And I study them as an academic pursuit. These two practices parallel one another. I often turn to historic patchwork designs for inspiration; I find new ways of using old patterns by adapting them with unconventional fabrics and settings. Likewise, in my research about Amish quilts, I probe these objects by examining them within diverse contexts, drawing inspiration from scholars whose work established quilts as a legitimate scholarly pursuit.
