I visited a blog in the last couple days that has a school house block quilt shown. I left a comment concerning blocks that the little group I belong to made for one of the members. We did birthday blocks. You could select a theme for the blocks to be done for your birthday month or leave it up to the others to select. Jan is a school teacher. We chose to make her Schoolhouse blocks. I had a pattern for a large block where the building side had different quilt blocks instead of a wall with windows. Each person made a different quilt block on their building side when making the block. A blog reader saw my comment & e-mailed to ask me about the blocks. I no longer have the pattern and can't remember any information about it to assist me in finding anything on the internet. I used Electric Quilt to draw a similar block though not as large. Caroline, the blog reader, lives in Belgium. She has good English skills but I could not communicate to her what I meant by changing the blocks you would put on the building side. I sent her the EQ file but with only one block drawn. I e-mailed her later today telling her I would try to get a couple blocks made up and put photos on my blog. Here they are.
I only had time to make one block, so I made a pinwheel block just to lay over the Shoofly block already inserted into my Schoolhouse block.
I am not going to be making these blocks any time soon. I have another Schoolhouse quilt project I need to be working on. Fabric all purchased and ready to go. The Shoofly and Pinwheel blocks are 4 1/2" finished. The overall block is 12" finished. Caroline, I hope this helps you to understand. You can make any 4 1/2" block and change it with each Schoolhouse block that you make.
Come back again soon!
