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 three hundred and twelve of that project.

This quilt block shows a house in front of a mountain range. The mountain range is a dark brown with a light brown outline stitching. The house itself looks like two barns attached to each other in the middle. It is a tan brown and has pen markings on it to indicate the metal roof, garage doors, windows and porch. There is a teal and light blue diamond shaped sign above the garage doors on the right. The ground the house is on is a polka-dotted duo-tone fabric that is a shade of brown of dirt. The sky is a light blue salmon patterned background.

This is the house that Scott built.

In 1984 my late husband Scott and I began construction on our home.

It’s a big log house. He dug the hole and after the basement was poured I painted tar on the outside. We raised and set the logs and beams ourselves with nothing more than a block and tackle.

The only parts we didn’t do was install the metal roofing and pour the basement.

We built for 4 years.

Because our youngest was crawling, when we were working on the second floor we put rope and harness on him and nailed the rope to the floor so I could work without fear he would crawl off.

He would play with his toys where I was working. We raised our sons there and now one of them is raising his family there.

This is the farmhouse for Sisu Farm.
