Today is the Old School House. What a great block!
This block was so much fun because I was able to throw out convention and look for fabric that looked like sky and earth and windows, etc. I used one of my favorite light blue stripe on cream for the sky, and a brown arrow and star for the roof. To continue the schoolhouse theme, I used a light blue alphabet for the front of the schoolhouse, and a medium red leaf/star to simulate brick for the schoolhouse body. I went for a fun stripe for the windows (thinking they might have window shades!), and a cute little tan floral for the ground.
Just a fun block all around.. and easy to sew! Next entry, Sarah comes home and sees the quilt. What will she think?
