Schoolhouse patterns were this week’s Cruise & Use activity on The Quilt Index Facebook page. I returned to the  Browse by Pattern Page where I chose Schoolhouse This browsing category contains 58 records. The Browse by  Pattern page includes more than 200 of the most common patterns and their variations taken mostly from Barbara Brackman’s Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns, first edition.

Then I narrowed down my search by selecting five Schoolhouse quilts to compare. Next, I clicked on the View Record link under each record’s image to view the Basic record view for each quilt. Click on the images below to find out more about each quilt.
