Full Stop

 The last block in the Fullstop quilt is here at last.   It is the simplest of blocks.  It is a sign of just how out of control my life has become that it has taken me this long to get it put together.   Somehow school is just so much more than it has been in the past.   More difficult and stressful for the kids, more time consuming, more of everything!   I've gotten overloaded with tutoring trying to help kids get caught up and somehow just end up struggling through things that used to be so much easier.   Quilting used to be a joy to look forward to on weekends, but somehow I just haven't had the mental energy lately.   I am getting back into the swing though, and looking forward to finishing up some of this year's block collections.   

First up of course is the quilt along that should have had the last block published last month!   And so simple!    I am going to turn my fullstops into a rainbow row to tie together all of the colors so far.   



Start with one 2.5 inch square of the color of your choice along with two 2.5 inch squares of background and one strip which is 2.5 by 6.5 to separate the periods.   
Sew one background square onto either side of the colorful block and press toward the dark
Now just sew the 6.5 inch strip to on edge and press toward the background.  
Now just collect together a nice stack of 2.5 inch square and arrange them into a pleasing order.  I'm going with ROYGBIV of course, but any arrangement will do.  I think that I will try to get this row to span the entire width of the finished quilt.

it sounds like the whole school year has taken some of the joy out of life for you - here too some kids are struggling to keep up and the parents haven't been able to help them all the time because they don't understand it all. I know if I had a grandchild home struggling through math I wouldn't be much use as I never understood any of it more than regular math

Oh, that's going to be cute as can be - I love the rainbow idea! Thanks for doing this for us, and don't worry one bit about it being November instead of October. Life happens! Take good care of yourself!

Love the rainbow idea. I hope things calm down a bit so the school year can get a little smoother for you.

Kudos to you for sticking with teaching and being there for the kids! I'd have blown a gasket long ago, mostly because of all the political posturing going on. Hang in there!

So, so sorry teaching and school has been and is so hard right now. Of course it already can be ror many for so many unavoidable reasons, and there was no way to avoid that the terrible pandemic would add a lot of difficulty to the lives of everybody, teachers and children in particular. But one would have hoped that authorities and administration would do everything in their power to support and help. Regrettably, in many places - such as your state - that has been far from the case.
Thanks for hanging in there!
