Just Takes 2™ Schoolhouse Quilt – Block 5


It's April 1st - April Fools' Day but I'm not going to play any tricks on you. It's also a Just Takes 2 day, Midget Block Monday and just a general "catch up from the holiday" day around here. I'm checking things off my list as quickly as I can. We had a wonderful family day together yesterday celebrating Easter. I'm so lucky to have wonderful children I love spending time with. They're the best!

I can't believe I haven't posted anything new since I did the last block for Brenda two weeks ago. I guess I've been busier than I thought. Today's block is another classic pieced block you'll have no trouble putting together. Here it is already sewn in a schoolhouse.

Here's a closer look at the Nancy Page block called Double T.

If you're on Spring break this week I hope you're having a wonderful vacation. I'm organizing and packing to head off to Shipshewana next Tuesday for the Dear Jane Retreat. I can't wait to see my retreat buddies, eat pie, go shopping and maybe take a stitch or two in something.

    Gay. It looks like you’re using squares and triangles for the “sky” pieces on the left and right sides of the roof and chimneys instead of Templates A and D. I’m having such a time with those templates and would rather do it your way. Can you give us those measurements, please?!

    I’m happy to give you the measurements to try using squares and triangles for the “sky” pieces. I hope they work for you. The square isn’t exactly a square and the triangle isn’t exactly a triangle but here goes………………..

    Cut two 2 1/8″ x 2 3/8″ pieces.

    Cut a 2 3/8″ x 3 3/8″ rectangle and cut diagonally from corner to corner for the triangular shape pieces.

    Let us know how it works out.
