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 twenty-four of that project.

This quilt block shows a patch of grass at the bottom indicated by a dark green fabric cut with a jagged edge pointing up. The grass is outlined with a yellow stitching. To the left is a small birdbath. It's a simple tan cone with a small bowl at the top to make the bath. On top of the bowl, and about half as big as it, is a red bird. It is made up of duotone polka dotted red fabric. There is a similar bird mid-flight coming to rest on the other side of the birdbath. This is all against a blue salmon-patterned background.

Here is another birdbath.

Always a popular and easy addition to even a little garden. This version is quite a bit smaller than the last one we saw.

This is in a young diminutive garden. All the plantings and trees are young. This was a good choice for this spot.

The scale is appropriate and fits in nicely. It also attracts the smaller birds, even hummingbirds.

The young man who lives here keeps it super clean and consequently the birds flock here.

Could be the bird feeder he keeps stocked just a few feet away helps too.
