Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan Claire. This is day one hundred and sixteen of that project.

In this quilt block we have another light orange building bearing the words, "Middle Park High." This building is shorter and squatter than the previous building.  It has a darkish red rhombus shaped roof. The door is taller and thinner and a much more saturated color of orange, with two light yellow windows next to it. The fence here reaches almost up to the roof of the building! What a compound!

Freshman and sophomores are in this building.

Holy Cow that was a long time ago for me.

It was so scary and exciting at the same time. High school was the big league.

Didn’t you become COOL automatically when you got there?

Of course not.

You were still awkward and sometimes goofy looking. Acne was rampant because back in my day they didn’t have the stuff there is now.

I had cystic acne and one time my mom read that if you put the skin that is on the inside of an egg shell on the blemish it would help shrink it so I tried that too.

We worried about what to wear, and how to do our hair and make-up.

Oh yeah and there is that studying thing, too.

After you got to school the sophomores acted like they owned you.

It was a rough time for all.
