Ye Olde Schoolhouse

Ye Olde Schoolhouse quilt shop in historic Cedarburg, Wisconsin, gave new life to an old school building.

Army Stars


The pieced blocks and machine quilting on the back of Army Stars are just as stunning as the quilt top. In the center of each block, Kathy Holz machine-quilted a star surrounded by a feathered wreath.

Reproduction Prints Aplenty


Reproduction prints and homespuns fill the shelves at Ye Olde Schoolhouse. Fabrics from some of Jeanie’s favorite designers, including Nancy Gere, Mary Koval, Paula Barnes of Bonnie Blue Quilts, and Margo Krager of Reproduction Fabrics, and entire lines from Barbara Brackman, Jo Morton, and Judie Rothermel round out the collection.

Making Miniatures


Original bookcases from the former schoolhouse library hold miniature bolts of fabric. Jeanie cuts cardboard bolts in half, folds fabric in half, then wraps a new mini bolt to make space on the larger shelves for new fabric bolts.

Bright 1930s Prints


Oopsie Daisy by Darlene Zimmerman graces the wall and Chain Reaction by Tea for Two is on the table in a sweet 1930s vignette.

Army Stars


The pieced blocks and machine quilting on the back of Army Stars are just as stunning as the quilt top. In the center of each block, Kathy Holz machine-quilted a star surrounded by a feathered wreath.

Quilting Details

Quilting Details


Kathy machine-quilted a daisylike design where the blocks intersect and feathers in the borders.

Army Stars Color Option


Pretty pastels from the Sanibel collection by Heather Mulder Peterson and Deb Mulder for Henry Glass & Co. reveal this pattern’s lighter side. By using the same fabric combinations for all the star blocks, side units, and triangle-squares, quilt tester Laura Boehnke completed a less scrappy version. To simplify, Laura used only the Army Stars A blocks.
