house quilts for sale (but not mine)

I have become obsessed with the little red schoolhouse quilt  pattern lately (see the previous post for picture of the progress on hand quilting mine). My friend Kristen sent me a link to one for sale on eBay so  I decided to see what else was out there on eBay.  I typed in “house quilt” on the search line and I got quit a few examples!  Here a just a few of the many I found.( click pictures to enlarge )

The quilts can be found on eBay by using the item numbers in the search line.

So what do you think of these? Lots of different takes on the theme and there are so many more.

Happy Quilting

Tim

    That’s very cool — as a city mouse, I especially like the red and white two-story house, fourth one down; the quilter built out a Schoolhouse, expanded it to better suit modern tastes (probably has granite counter tops and trace ceilings). Instead of Schoolhouse, we could call the Suburbanhouse or Townhouse. And whew, love that pink and green at the end! The Lily Pulitzer house or Preppyhouse. And I like that raspberry on orange sherbet housing arrangement — quilter shoulda’ done the sashing in lime green to complete the classic rainbow sherbet trifecta.

    I love all of the schoolhouse quilts. My pocket doesn’t. I was on ebay this morning for over an hour and all that I saw was the two story red one.

    Thank you. This is inspiring.

      thank you
      it is fun to look at them all, and I do spend time doing just that ….it is less frequent that I find one that is a great deal and actually buy one, I only buy tops, but I do enjoy seeing what is out there

    I’ve got one I’d like to sell, too. Can send you a picture if you’d like.

    Update on my House Quilt, the one at the top of the page. It’s sold, and I’m very happy to say it went back to its state of origin.
