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 sixteen of that project.

This quilt block shows a water tank. The tank itself is a gray rectangle with a water spigot coming out. However, what stands out is all the vines and greenery that are growing over the tank, outlined in yellow stitching and red pen with green pieces of fabric for the leaves. The spigot is a piece of rough gray fabric outlined with black. The tank is facing to the right against a blue salmon-patterned background.

Here is a garden water tank.

It has a spigot so a hose can be attached to water out into the garden.

It sits higher than the rest of the garden area so gravity helps the water to run. The top is open and rain water collects and grey water can be added.

If you don’t know, grey water is “used” water. For example, water that vegetables are washed in gets added.

It’s a green way to do things.
