Little Red Schoolhouse


Ta Da!  Here's the finished schoolhouse quilt.  Just four blocks and some Flying Geese.  When paired with great fabric can really make a graphic statement.  Simple is good.  It was great fun to make and went together easily.  I decided to name it Little Red Schoolhouse.  We have a Little Red Schoolhouse petting zoo not too far from here, and its been there for as long as I can remember.  I do recall going there on a grammer school field trip - which was a very long time ago!  We'll just leave it at that!  The top is now at the quilter and I have no idea what designs she'll be doing.  When it's finished, I'll post another photo.  The pattern will be available soon.

Oh, and by the way.....for all of you Prairie Women out there.....this block will be featured in a Journey 4 quilt, so stay tuned!
