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 ninety of that project.

This quilt block shows a large piece of jagged fabric pointing up to indicate grass. It's green of course. Then in the center of the block is a dark brown pole stuck in the grass, and on that pole is a scarecrow. The scarecrow has blue jeans on with patches, and an orange shirt on with patches drawn in with pen. At the end of the legs and arms you can see yellow straw coming out. Above the shirt is a the lower part of a yellow ball and a big brown frumpy hat. On top of that hat drawn in black pen is a crow.

“Hello farming country,” says this scarecrow.

Isn’t he cute out standing in his field? Even the crows love him.

We have been doing our outside decorating here at the shop. Yesterday we put our scarecrow out front.

We had a lot of fun building her and she’s a little scary. I love fall colors and I wear them all the time.

We are going to see a lot of farm life from here on and it’s going to be fun.
