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 fifty-nine of that project.

This quilt block shows a teal sign supported by two brown poles. The sign has a large sun in yellow-orange fabric in the top left corner, and another sun, more gold, in the bottom right corner like a badge. The writing on the sign is black and is a combination of cursive and print, that reads, "Sunny Vista Retirement Community."

Sunny Vista is the kind of (fictitious) retirement community I might like to live in.

Created for people over 50, it is beautiful; wonderful, gorgeous flowers and landscape.

Friendly people that don’t spend all their time watching what other people are doing and criticizing.

Games and classes offered everyday at the community center. A pool with a bar. Comfortable townhouses that are well maintained and all have a terrific view.

You might have noticed that the sign’s font is a hybrid of print and cursive.

The soft curves of the cursive appeal to the residents, but the print is so their grandchildren will be able to read it since cursive is not being taught anymore.

Regretfully, I doubt I will ever be a resident of such an idyllic place.
