I recently got my instructions for this year's graduation quilt. We have a tradition of making a friendship quilt for each year's graduate(s). This year there is only one boy in the eighth grade and his Mom sent out instructions for making the quilt blocks. The instruction go out to just about everybody who's currently here and the quilt top will be designed based on how many squares turn up by the deadline. Ones that come in late sometimes get put on the back or made into pillow tops. The Waldron school has 13 students in it this year (when they are all there as one parent said. One student is coming back today from a winter in Costa Rica). Graduating classes are frequently one or two students.
When Siri graduated in 1999 there were two students in her class and we had to hustle to finish two quilts. If I remember correctly they weren't quilted by graduation day and we had to take them back and finish them.
