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 seventy-one of that project.

This quilt block shows three trees in a row with various foliage. Each tree has a brown trunk with green stitching outlining it. The foliage is indicated by pieces of green fabric, also with green stitching outlining them. One tree is short with a round foliage, the next is medium with an oval foliage, and the next is tall, but with a short trunk, with a cone-shaped foliage. This is all against a blue salmon-patterned background.

This is a nice little stand of trees.

Groups like this are common at River Run. The terrain has highs and lows that offer spots where trees grow well.

The whole area is beautiful and the designers want to give a “back to nature” feel.

Trees are so important to this atmosphere. They provide shade, color, and life.
