"Schoolhouse" pieced antique quilt.
More than three dozen one-room schoolhouses are depicted here in a myriad of period prints. More often pieced in one solid color on a white background, this is an unusual example of this collectible pattern. The graphic simplicity of the piecework is a precursor to pop art. The "houses" preserve numerous examples of turn-of-the-century fabrics, and are arranged so that on the bed, the houses will be right side up from the left or the right side. With very few one-room schools remaining in the U.S., the quilt is a pleasing reminder of a piece of American history.
