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 fifty-five of that project.

This quilt block shows a yellow taxi cab from the side against a light blue salmon-patterned background. The taxi is a bright yellow fabric, with light gray fabrics for the windows, windshield, and fenders. There is a light yellow sign on top that has the word "TAXI" written on it in pen, and there is a checker board pattern in pen striped down the middle of the vehicle. There are two round dark wheels below with tiny two-holed off-white buttons where the hubcaps would be.

This is the sole TAXI in town.

It hangs out at the train station and the airport, depending on whether it’s time for a train or a plan to come in.

Vinnie drives the cab. There hasn’t always been a TAXI in That Town. Vinnie used to live in Trenton, where he drove a cab for 30 years.

When he retired he and his cab moved to our little town. Now Vinnie drives when he feels like it.

He likes his life and everybody likes Vinnie. He has a story for everything.

Sometimes people will take a ride in Vinnie’s cab just to hear a story or joke for the day.
