Quilting Knowledge One Stitch at a Time

Each month as students in Ms. Jensen's class met their reading goal, they got to decorate a quilt block.  At the end of the year the blocks were sewn together to make a quilt that they will take home.  Congratulations to all of the students who were diligent enough to read, read, read and earn a quilt this year!
