The Schoolhouse is one of America's favorite quilt patterns. This fine example is well designed with houses at right angles framing the primary group. It's interesting that the bottom row can be seen as either part of the vertical grouping or a continuation of the houses creating the frame. The quilt is in pristine condition. It is stitched with straight lines in the body and zigzags in the border. Measurements are 67" x 74". Made circa 1900; probably Ohio origin.
