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. This is day twenty-six of that project.
Today’s building reminded me of an orphanage for reasons I can’t explain. Maybe it was the number of doors or windows. When I looked at it I could imagine lots of children looking out those windows. I think the building is huge going back a long way with a playground in the back.
There would be places for all ages. A nursery for babies and a playroom for toddlers. Classrooms for the children old enough to go. A big dining room to feed everyone and dorm rooms for everyone to sleep.
It’s located in a nice suburban neighborhood so prospective parents can come to visit and hopefully adopt. A building where new families are created.
I realize I’m painting a very rosy picture but it’s my quilt and that’s what I want to think about. Everything is so hard for everyone right now I want a happy town to go to in my imagination.
Here is the quilt with the round I just finished added. I really love it! Again the link to this quilt pattern, That Town and Country Quilt, is www.gourmetquilter.com.
