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 twenty-two of that project.

This quilt block shows a red little buggy convertible car with the roof off against a light blue background. The car itself is from a side view, with two dark wheels whose hubcaps are represented by two small white two-holed buttons. The red car only has one set of doors and no back seat.

Here is my fantasy about this little red car: I am driving down the coastal highway in California.

I am wearing my cute sunglasses that have little pink flowers all over them and are rose tinted. I am wearing a scarf Audrey Hepburn style and wearing bright lipstick. Happy music is playing on the radio and the weather is perfect.

Here is the reality: I am not a good enough driver to drive a sports car and I fall asleep.

So in the interest of public safety I’ll just keep the fantasy in my head. When my husband and I were dating he owned a red MG convertible. We called it the baby car.

It was a sweet little number. I drove it once and it scared me to pieces.

Before we got married he sold the baby car and we bought a car with a back seat because I had a 2 year old that needed a car seat and he loved us.
