    The Ohio School House Block was "interesting". When I printed it so the 1 inch square was actually 1 inch, the block was not a 12-1/2 inch block. I had to add to the sides and bottom. I have not figured out what the problem is, but I made it work. At least I finished this one before the last week of the month.

    The fabric in the windows has the alphabet scattered over it. It is very faint, and the flash would cause it to disappear all together.

    You have made a great School House block too!! :thumbup: I love the red color that you made it with & the alphabet fabric in your windows. You didn't do a thing wrong with the size of your block. If you look on the pattern, it will tell you that it is a 10" block. Several blocks are not 12"s, so we have added on to make them the same size. Very nice work.
    :D :D :D :D

    Your blocks are all looking wonderful!! :thumbup: Yes, I really like your light house block too. It is certainly okay to add any blocks that you would like too. Thank you for sharing your lovely collection.

    I enjoy looking at all of your blocks. I had to drop out - sister's hubby was dying & she had surgery for broken leg & needed help.
    Just when I thoought I could get back to sewing, my hubby had a very serious accident in the mountains & has 4 fractured vertebrae, 1 totally shattered, 2 broken ribs, 5 bulging disks, surgery with pins and rods placed, spinal cord damage, learning to walk w/ walker. Our lives are upside down - not getting to ANY sewing/ quilting.

    There will always be time for sewing later. You are definitely needed else where right now. My thoughts are with you and your husband during this healing process which sounds like it's going to be a long and trying one. Keep your eye on that light at the end of the tunnel :!: .

    Surfergirl..........Your School House block is great, too. I really like the ABC's with apple's fabric that you used for the windows & the front door. It is so cute.

    Thank you everyone who posted re: my husband's accident and injuries, and my sister's loss of her hubby.
    We welcome your continued prayers for his recovery and my stamina, as well as comfort for my sister.
    Keep up the nice work on the blocks of the month - I really like seeing how different each one is.

    I had a look back and it was Maggiesmom who first mentioned a school bell.

    I'm sure she would be pleased to see some of us using her suggestion and I'm happy for anyone to borrow my layout.
