Little Quilts' books are full of lovely pictures of roomsets awash with adorable dinky quilts, mainly with a homespun feel.
My eyes were drawn to a quilt that looked a little like a flag but in particular, to the schoolhouse block in its corner. I love this block and hadn't yet tried it.
I didn't for whatever reason, fancy making the flag. But I did want to try the schoolhouse block and I must say, this is a nice easy version, no inset piecing in sight.
Four blocks and some sashing decisions later...
Oooh, cute don't you think? I made it virtually entirely from scraps too, just except for the sashing and corner stones.
I simply hand quilted the top last night in front of "Land Girls". I didn't want to make a small quilt though, so today, I added a button-closed backing et voila. I didn't expect we'd be looking at the pew again quite so soon but well, we are.
Maybe it's the freezing dull weather but this sort of homely design is floating my proverbial boat at the mo'.
Now what next?
