So here are a few of the "house" quilts from the Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts show.
I've noticed online that this block has two names, sometimes this block is called "Little Red Schoolhouse" and sometimes "The House that Jack Built".
This is quilt #755 and was hung in Pavilion 5, Exterior Middle. I'm guessing these are more houses that Jack built since they're surrounding a church, like a a little red house town.
This is quilt #1012, and was hung in Pavilion 8. Another little red house town surrounding a church.
This was my favorite house quilt.
I like the fence and how that one row of houses are upside down.
This was the inspiration for my little quilt.
My houses are 4 1/2 inches, and even though they were pesky, I love them. I would love a whole quilt of these houses but not houses that are only 4 1/2 inches, I would want to build bigger houses for a full size quilt.
My version is 21" x 39" and has 450 pieces.
For the whole project I'm now up to 2,090 pieces. I think I'm over the half way point.
Next up, a few of these.
