Jeannette made this fabulous red and white School House quilt using the Inklingo 9″ School House collection.

She writes:

“I used the 9″ School House collection for this quilt. Some houses were hand pieced and some were machined. The border is made of 2″ HSTs. I hand quilted the Baptist Fan design on this and I love the way it turned out. It measures¬†65″ x 55″.”

Red and White School House

DSC00545

Jeannette made this fabulous red and white school house quilt using shapes from three Inklingo collections – the 9″ School House, the 1″ Log Cabin and the HST OOB collection.

She writes:

“Here’s a picture of my house quilt that I have finally managed to put together. I made the blocks 10 inches by using two of the 10″ x 1″ pieces from the Log cabin collection. The quilt measures 56″x66″ and was hybrid pieced. The border was made using 1.75″ HSTs.”

Jeannette gave a very detailed description of how she was making her house blocks in the first post about them posted here as “Red and White Houses.”

Red and White Houses

Jeannette from Australia is making houses.

She writes:

“I’m sending a picture of some of the Little Red School House blocks that I have made into 10″ blocks using 1″ x 10″ logs from the Log Cabin Collection.
I printed 2 logs for each house block. One log separates the roof from the walls, the other log is cut as follows:
3.5″ to separate the side wall from the front of the house and the rest of the log needs to be reduced to 1.25” wide by cutting on the dotted line on 1 side only otherwise when sewn between the gable and the rest of the roof on the angle it is too wide.

After sewing in place I trimmed it to size. The sky piece is cut 2.5″x10.5″. I used 2 chimneys on the roof and the sizes for the sky pieces in between are 1 each as follows; 2.5″ x 2.75″, 2.5″ x 3.5″, 2.5″ x 3.75″.

I have pieced them using my machine and I have made 21 houses so far for a Quilt pattern on the cover of the Australian Patchwork and Quilting Magazine volume 8 number 7.
The blocks in the book are 12″.
I am very happy with the way they are turning out and I thought may be someone else might be interested in this size as well.”
