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 thirty-nine of that project.

This quilt block shows a bright orange truck on a light blue salmon-patterned background. The cab of the truck is a brighter orange than the bed of the truck, which is covered like a big rig. The wheels are dark circles with white hubcaps drawn on by pen. There is a big sign on the tall cab on the truck that shows a adult penguin taking care of a baby penguin. There are pink words that read, "Waldow & Daughter" and underneath it in black, "Trucking."

Waldow and Daughter Trucking.

This truck doesn’t exactly look like the trucks that are in Waldow and Daughter’s fleet.

Tina, the owner, usually drives a big logging truck. She’s amazing. I really wanted to include this company in my quilt.

About twenty-five years ago my farm daughter-in-law’s father started the company and he, his wife, son, and Farmgirl drove dump trucks.

I’d like to add here that Farmgirl is also amazing. She has driven big rigs since she was 18.

She started with transportation buses and now she belongs to the California teamsters and sometimes goes to California and drives big rigs in Los Angeles.

Back to Waldow and Daughter Trucking. The logo for Waldow and Daughter Trucking is a father penguin with his chick. Several years ago when her dad passed away a new daughter took over and now she is Waldow and Daughter Trucking.

These girls are the sisters to the Nick from Nick’s Dirt Works earlier in the quilt.

The whole family is on wheels.
