I don't do wide borders and I don't do school-related themes...but I'm really happy with this little top.
It took me a while to figure out the direction of the novelty print. The numbers lean here and there but the people are always right side up. I'm glad I realized that before I cut the strips and put the borders on.
I've always wanted to make a schoolhouse quilt but I didn't want to mess with the templates. (Don't ask me why these are any different than the templates for Grandma's Donuts, but they are.) I found the pattern for this little house in 101 Fabulous Small Quilts and decided to give it a shot. The roof pieces gave me some trouble, but I've got a 4" square little schoolhouse.
