Midweek Makers #89

Another week of quilty goodness has arrived! Come share your creations on Midweek Makers so we can all see!



I'm working hard to finish up the quilt I've been teasing you with now that I'm back from the East Coast. I have no quilting to share this time, but I do have a fun trip down memory lane.

In 1972, my family moved to a small town in Vermont, where I went to this one-room schoolhouse for two years.

No longer a functioning school, it is now a historical site, one of three one room school houses left in the state. Still looks the same doesn't it?

Here's the inside, with the window of the entry door on the far right. Grades 1-3 sat in the front, and grades 4-6 in the back, where the planks are.

Wonderful to see it again, as it certainly is a unique piece of my childhood. Not many can say they went to a one-room schoolhouse!

Another blast from the past is this version of my Spangled Stars QAL from 2015, made by Kathy from Kathy's Quilting Blog.



Looks great, doesn't it? I know I love mine - it's always out every summer. Be sure to grab a 'Featured' button Kathy!

  1. I went to a one room schoolhouse for two years in Wisconsin - they are fun - I think the years I went was in 63 -64? somewhere around there. Mine was not turned into a historical site, someone turned it into a small house instead. But the old grade school I went to after that was turned into a museum for awhile and then a flea market it was a two story brick building that had grades 1 - 8

  8. It must have brought back many wonderful memories. I'll bet it looked even smaller to you as an adult.

  9. So fun to see your one room schoolhouse. I bet it looked a lot bigger when you were going to school there. My mom taught school in a one room school house. She had a high school diploma which was all that was needed at the time.
