Projects Inspired by Classrooms of the Past
By Renee Plains
Published by Kansas City Star

This is a charming book based on the concept of the one room schoolhouse. I was drawn to this book because like Renee, the author,I collect turn of the century class photos. Each child in the pictures tells a story. The quilts in this book also tell a story creating heirlooms for tomorrow.

    This book looks intriguing. I love reading turn of the century books and would a chance to win this one! And the fact that there are quilt projects in it, makes it even better!

  2. Martina says:

    Love the cover of the book. Looks very warm and inviting. Also a very interesting theme. My husband went to a one classroom schoolhouse as he grew up in a very small village!Thanks for the lovely give away!

  3. Sue says:

    Congratulations to the winner. I have the book and it's fantastic. Right now I'm working on the Abacus quilt from it made by Cheryl Miller. This is a wonderful book!

  4. I can tell just by the cover that this is one book I would luv to have. I would use it as a 'coffee table book'. Who does not like a log cabin quilt or reading about our yesterdays. Creating heirlooms is why I quilt today. Thanks for the chance to put 'Stitches from the Classroom' on my coffee table for quilters and non quilters to read.

    Congratulations to today's winner. I would put it on the coffee table with my other prized modern art quilting book. The contrast would show the both sides of me.

    This book would be a blessing to our One Room Schoolhouse, Wallace Academy for Christ! 🙂 I intend on teaching my son to sew and quilt (and any other children that the Lord blesses us with too!). Thank you for the giveaway!

    Glenda, congratulations on your win!

    Sounds as though Stitches From The School House is rich in history and with one of my favorite subjects … Quilting! Thank you for the opportunity to enter.

    This looks like a wonderful book! Reminds me of a 2-room schoolhouse where I taught in a rural community in Vermont. Thanks for offering this book in the giveaway!
