STITCHES FROM THE CLASSROOM
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.

  5. Why are there sooooo many 'fantastic' quilt books????? To me they are like fabric, you can never & to many & there's always a 'must have' and this book is a 'must have' (that I don't have......yet) !

  10. 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.
