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 and four of that project.

This quilt block shows a tan fence with slats that have significant gaps between them. The slats are rounded at the end. In between the slats and above them are a row of beautiful flowers. The greenery for the flowers is done with intricate stitching, with even the leaves as stitches. The flowers are a combination of red fabric with medium sized two-hole buttons in the center, and red and white pen marking coming out from the center to show beautiful flower petals. This is all against a blue salmon-patterned background.

I think a fence sets most everything off and this little display of happy faced flowers is no exception.

This is the street view of a long garden that is the home for the herb beds that grow the herbs for Farmhand 1’s roadside stand.

Besides offering a showy front this fence and tall flowers provides a little shade for some herbs that need it. At the back of the plot there is a little greenhouse for the tender hearted herbs that need a little extra TLC.

Everything else grows with happy abandon in composted soil.
