More Red and White Quilts - part 2


I might have mentioned once (or twice) how much I love house quilts and when I saw Paula's version I started planning one like it of my own. Are these pieced mansions or perhaps multi-family dwellings? Her quilt pictured above is actually a small version of a Schoolhouse quilt made in NY or Pennsylvania around 1910.

She plans to make more red and white quilts, mostly in a reduced size to make them easier to display. I like that idea. I have some excellent antique quilts but am not able to enjoy them as much as I like because they are too big to display. My blue and white house quilt is an exception and I display it regularly.

I fel like I have to rush off and make something red and white as I drool over your posts. I love the manasions, they remind me of the houses up the street we call Mcmansions. I adore the small quilts from Paula, what a talent!

My spelling is atrocious today, I meant to say mansions.

What a wonderful House quilt! I love that it's a bit "different". Red & White quilts are a favorite of mine too!

Give me a red and white quilt any day! And can you believe I have a red/white schoolhouse; it's on my bed every September.

Your blog is so nice.
