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 sixty-two of that project.

This quilt block shows a yellow building with a brown roof (and door). Above the roof is a sign with lights around it (indicated by marks of pen) that says, "Motel" The roof is in a trapezoid shape and is a deep brown fabric. Underneath the roof on the yellow building are the words, "Notell Motel". Above the door it reads, "Office" and above the light tan window it reads, "No Vacancy". Each piece of fabric, including the tan window, is outlined by a duotone black and light tan stitching.

Mr and Mrs. Notell have had this little motel since the 1950’s.

It is old but well maintained, clean and has flat screen TVs. They learned from their clientele that good TVs and reception are important.

They have lots of people that come in at the same time every month or quarter. They are sales reps and have stayed with the Notells for years.

When new people check in they always hear the same jokes about the “No Tell Motel” wink wink.

While discretion is part of their hospitality it is not the feature they are best known for.
