outhouses.....and more!

Amanda, from Vermont, made this adorable little quilt for her in-law's 40th wedding anniversary.
It's a Carolyn Friedlander pattern, called "Outhouses". 
Here's a link to Carolyn's darn cute!
It's a lot of tiny paper piecing, but isn't it adorable?
Amanda did an excellent job piecing it!
I had so much fun quilting it...
all straight-line quilting, but in a quirky way.
Amanda had me finish the binding and sew a sleeve on the back for hanging.
 Then - she makes this amazing little rainbow color quilt.
She challenged me to quilt it in random straight line patches. 
 I love how it all came together.
I've always loved the pinwheel block.
I quilted loops within the pinwheels and a herringbone design in the borders.
Love the solid purple binding.
I love your "quilting style", Amanda.
Thank you!
