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 Mayfield. This is day two hundred of that project.

This quilt block shows a bunch of flowers. Five tulip looking flowers extend upwards from a jagged piece of green fabric made to look like grass. The stalks of the flowers are pen and stitching. The leaves that point upwards, two for each flower on each side are a darker green with a light green stitching outline. The tops of the flowers, the bulbs, are a bright orange at the base, with a yellow part sticking out the top, much like a tulip.

These flowers look like tulips to me.

I have a little story about tulips this year at our house.

Farmhand 1 planted and grew some very beautiful red and yellow tulips.

While they were in full bloom Farmhand 4 picked them.

Without permission.

He went in and gave them to his mom and said “I have a present for you”.

Farmhand 4 can have the most beguiling expression I have ever seen. Farmhand 1 was not a bit happy at this development.

Sort of like having your thunder stolen right out from under you.

Little brothers are a pain sometimes.
