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 seven of that project.

This quilt block shows a bird feeder with two birds on it against a blue salmon-patterned background. The bird feeder is on a black pole with yellow stitching outlining it. On the pole is a cone shape with the broad base at the bottom to keep out squirrels. The cone shape is drawn with pen and has a sheen on it. The bird feeder is yellow with a slanted green roof. The birds sitting on the perch are a red-orange with a yellow stitching outline and drawn beaks.

Amy took another trip to the garden center/hardware store.

She decided she had room for a bird feeder.

She lugged home everything she needed, a pole, small sack of concrete, the birdfeeder and ten pounds of bird food. She decided on sunflower seeds and shelled peanuts.

As she was putting it all into the back of her car she picked up the bird seed and thought, “This looks good enough to eat. Oh no, it looks good enough for a squirrel to eat!”

She knew there were a lot of big trees in her neighborhood and those big trees had squirrels. So, she hustled back in and bought a anti-squirrel shield.

She went straight home and got busy.

Within a couple of hours Amy had installed her very own squirrel proof bird feeder. She was so proud of herself she called her Dad up first thing and told him.

She was very pleased when he said, “That’s my girl!”
