It's Day Five Of The Welcome To My House Blog Hop-My Day Too

It's been an amazing week of houses in all sorts of creations in the Welcome To My House
blog hop. I'm so grateful to all of you who got creative and those of you who have visited.
I hate to see this end, but I always feel that way on the last day of a blog hop.
Thank you everyone!

It's my day for sharing my house project and I chose to use the Accuquilt schoolhouse
 die I've had for several years. It made cutting out my schoolhouses so easy!

Night School
Finished size: 58" x 58"


The center blocks are unfinished squares measuring 10 1/2" x 10 1/2".
The schoolhouses fit perfectly!


The fabrics are some I found at a quilt store going out-of-business...
Maywood Whisper Whites and In The Black Continuum.
I quilted lines using Aurifil white 50wt thread.


There are so many more houses to see...

Takes us back even farther than our good old days. For the old fashioned school houses black and white are a perfect choice. Like black and white photos back then. Lots of cute sewing/quilting in this blog hop.

Just found this on the last day. I am going to look at all. I dream of a house quilt, I am sure I will find the perfect one in this hop. Love your school house b/w, but I am think scrappy and maybe a neighborhood or even a town.

Carol, your Night House quilt is so dramatic and charming! Black and white are just meant to be paired together. I've never used a die cutter, but would be interested in trying. As always, great work, my friend!
