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 eighty of that project.

This quilt block shows a square building. The roof is gray and flat. Underneath that is a brown building with gray double doors. There is a very detailed picture of a long boat drawn in pen on a yellow piece of fabric above the door. Below that, still above the door, is a dark brown sign with white letters that reads, "Country Home Outfitter." This is all against a light-blue salmon-patterned background.

I chose this building to add to my quilt because I like the longboat painted on the brick facade.

When I was a girl it was the hardware store we went to for everything. Actually, it was under different ownership but it was the hardware store where we bought everything to build our house in the late ’80s.

I wanted to tell you something about this business but couldn’t find anything online and they are open by appointment only so I couldn’t talk to anyone either.

Best as I can discern they have lighting options.
