Amish Houses are quilted





This one is just as pretty from the back as it is from the front. For my regular readers, this is my Amish House quilt, and I spent most of July and August working on this. It's a bit outside of my usual projects - with each of the 12 house blocks having a unique 6" square miniature quilt.


But it's all worth it when I see this finished up with beautiful quilting. Carly put a different quilted motif over the miniature quilt in each block. The house parts were outline quilted. The sky is a very small stipple. Then beautiful leaf shapes in the first border, a geometric design in the second border, and finally another soft swirly design in the third border.


I absolutely LOVE it! Carly did a great job!
