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 nine of that project.

This quilt block shows a golden bench against a blue salmon-patterned background. The bench's slats are made out of a golden orange fabric. The legs are curved to the right, and each ends in two curved feet that curl upwards towards the seat of the bench. The legs are much darker brown than the bench in a very complementary color. The whole bench is outlined with a bright yellow and orange fabric stitching, giving it a sort of glow. Perched on top of the bench is a yellow bird with a drawn beak and eyes in pen. It appears to be chirping.


A nice place to end the day after weeding or harvesting.

Also, a nice spot to begin the day with a hot cup of coffee and a scone. Come out in your PJ’s in bare feet and hear the birds.

When the dog (or cat) wanders over to say hello you can give a tummy rub with your foot.

Life is good!
