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 thirty-eight of that project.

This quilt block shows a motorcycle made out of fabric. The chassis and motor are made out of a gray highly textured fabric and is accented with a light gray stitching indicating the engine and the tail pipe, as well as the handle bars. The wheels are a black circle of fabric, but mostly covered with the gray fabric indicating the spokes with the same stitching. The chrome is a dark red fabric with dark grey stitching, and on the main body behind the handlebars is an orange splotch of fabric in the shame o a flame. The seat is the same black fabric as the wheels, with black stitching.


Here is Cathy’s motorcycle. She really loves to ride. She and her husband take long rides all over.

She is a good friend and moved out of state. As soon as I saw this motorcycle I thought of her. I have ridden on the back of a few motorcycles for short outings. I found it fun and thrilling.

Also a little scary.

I could never drive a motorcycle. I can’t even control a bicycle! I would certainly be a danger to myself and others.

So, I envy Cathy and her wild spirit to ride that big bike.

You go girl!
