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 thirty-nine of that project.

This block shows a detailed red tractor. This tractor has a red chassis. There is a seat with a starting wheel that is penned in white. The innards of the tractor are shown in the body of the tractor with black and white pen markings. There is a big wheel on the back end that is black, red, and silver on the large axle. There is a smaller wheel up front. The wheels have a white stitching outlining them. There is a smoke stack coming out of the chassis which has black pen on the top and little clouds coming out.

I have a tractor that looks like this block.

It is a Massey-Ferguson 35. My grandfather bought it in 1960.

It has been working on our place since then with the exception of one winter when my husband rebuilt the engine. This is a hardworking little machine.

It doesn’t have power steering or power brakes and just nearly bounces the sense out of you when you have to use it. We use it to spread manure and drag fields now. I will be really sad when his time is over on the farm.

(Hopefully not any time soon.)
