Now, I am no expert on School house quilts but they mainly seem to be done in red and I am thinking that this is perhaps due to the colour of the typical school houses in America back in the day. I would love for someone to comment with a bit of history round about now!
However in our modern era, the rules are no longer a restriction and you could go from something semi-traditional in red (I would vote this as my favourite) to a multi-coloured sensation
Blue is my colour and that is what I had in mind. In the meantime why not have a practise run and tackle this miniature schoolhouse quilt using Kaffe Fassett fabrics.
