I'm retired teacher/librarian and a grandmother with three of the cutest grandchildren. DH is a cattle rancher and I "get" to help often with his job. I started out quilting as a relaxing hobby and now I have become a collector of fabric that I'm going to make into something wonderful, there aren't enough hours in the day to get it all done. I live by the motto: "Sew much fabric and sew little time". LOL.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, paper piecing, hand quilting, other

You are correct. They have, indeed, moved locations for the elementary school. They built a new one east of the high school, and this is the first year they are in it. If you turn where the high school is, there is the middle school as you travel east; and the new elementary is north of the middle school and east of the high school. It is a beautiful building. They have four sessions for each grade level, which is amazing for such a small community. There were way too many students for the old building.
I looked at the pictures of the Points of Pride quilt in the magazine where you got the pattern, and it is beautiful. How big did you make it? I would like to do one like it one of these days. What kind of fabric did you use?
I am expecting the next group of blocks for SBS to come in the mail any day now--blocks 111 to 120 going alphabetical the way the book is organized. I have finished all of the Farmer's Wife blocks, and I'm just trying to get motivated to sew the lattice to join the blocks into rows. I don't like doing that very much, though, so I think of other things to sew instead.
Autumn is over, I think, with the freezing temperatures the last couple of days.
The "reduced" just means that the original picture file was made smaller to it wouldn't be a huge file. The chart can be found under the discussion list on page 16 and is called the "Grid Chart". She has included directions for putting your blocks in there. It is really helpful to see which ones you have finished. Hope that helps.
I live in Gunnison, but I get to Provo at least once a month; so I am familiar with the area up that way. My favorite quilt shop is in Springville--the Corn Wagon.
I am still teaching school in Manti, but I plan to retire in two years if the legislature doesn't do anything disastrous with the state retirement system before then.
I joined the Dear Jane group on Connecting Threads Quilt With Us, but I haven't joined Darlene's Slacker group. However, I am making Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Quilt anyway. I have almost 80 of the blocks completed, but I am skipping the ones with applique on them. I may substitute blocks that are paper pieced for the applique blocks, OR I may just end up with a smaller quilt and just leave out the applique blocks altogether. I know how to do applique (I had to learn when I did my Dear Jane quilt), but I never have learned to like it much.
I assume you are making SBS. How many blocks have you completed?
