New England House

This is a good example of a traditional New England farmhouse with attached outbuildings and barn.

This is the main house. This traditional style was built on symmetry.  The windows and front door are all lined up just so.  Note also the placement of the two chimneys, and the solid granite block foundation. This is a large house, and the family that built it was prosperous. My guess is it's almost 200 years old. It's been very well taken care of.

This looks like a simple house to free-piece, but to get the feel of it just right, it would have to be big! Still, though, isn't it great?

Isn't that the house that was on This Old House, a few years ago?

Gorgeous house . . . if anyone can free piece it, you could!

I love it! Can't wait to see it in fabric.

Isn't that house right across the street from Quilted Threads?
