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 seventeen of that project.

This quilt block shows a large brown fence with rounded tops for the first lower third of the block. Then above that are three cone like trees in a row against a gray background. The trees greenery is indicated by a polka-dotted light green splotchy fabric.

This is a nice little break between the high school and middle school. A shady area with tables and benches so the occasional class can be held in the open air.

This area is for middle schoolers only. The staff has found that the trees provide wonderful shade when it’s hot but also manage to present opportunities to hide behind and gossip or sneak a kiss.

They are allowed music but not cell phones while they are out there. Studying is what’s supposed to be happening.

Daydreaming is what is mostly happening. Romances are budding and hand holding is thrilling.

Doodling in your notebook while you watch the clouds and hear the birds in the trees.

In the fall when the leaves fall students do the raking and bagging of leaves. They are then carried over to the compost area in the high school experimental garden area.

There is nothing like sunshine on your upturned face.

That, frankly, always makes me sleepy, so I would probably be dozing when I was supposed to be studying.
