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 six of that project.

This quilt block shows a small young round tree, a sign and a purple hatted garden gnome all sitting next to each other. The tree has a green ball for it's greenery, and a orange-brown terracotta looking pot (that's really plastic). The garden gnome's eyes are obscured by his hat, and his beard is white. His little nose is a pink color. The nose and beard are marked with pen. He's wearing a green shirt with a floral design printed on it. Next  to him is a yellow sign that reads in part cursive, "Amy's Garden."

Amy has a tiny garden spot.

She’s really proud of it though, and takes super good care of it.

To make it special for her she adopted Clarence the garden gnome to welcome people to her little space. She fell in love with him on the spot when she saw him in the garden center.

She actually bought these 3 pieces at the same time.

The tree was in an ugly black plastic pot and the sign was blank. So Amy got right to work painting her name on the sign and putting the little tree in a pretty pot.

It looks like terra cotta but it’s a good imitation plastic so it isn’t so heavy.

She put them together and decided Clarence could still use a little something. Pretty soon he was sporting flowers all over him.

Amy was happy with what she saw.
