Antique Quilt - schoolhouse Bloggers Fest - Fall 2010

Antique House (schoolhouse) Quilt

c. 1890 72" x 72"

Thanks again to Amy for hosting another quilters blog fest where we feature our favorite quilts.
This is a current favorite- a school house block quilt. I like the funky piecing (the maker had some interesting sewing techniques) but was very careful to choose small scale fabrics which don't overwhelm the blocks as they are midsized about 9 inches. The 3rd picture shows the one schoolhouse (1st block, top row) that was done in a reverse color scheme-just too fun. Enjoy.
Don't forget to visit my other blog to see my miniature pink and black puzzle quilt
