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 fifty-four of that project.

This quilt block shows a blue tractor from the side. It's very blue. The blue fabric is accented by a silver fabric. The silver fabric makes up the inside of the wheels, the steering wheel, and a small stripe on the side of the chassis. The wheels are a black fabric while the hubcaps are blue. The tractor is a smaller tractor with a little open seat in front of the steering wheel, and one big tired behind a small one.

Little Blue Tractor is the garden tractor.

It’s a fairly recent addition. In fact, Mom got it for her 50th birthday.

Best present ever.

She wheels around the lawn, mowing and thinks it’s so fun her family has caught her doing it twice on the same day.

She has a little dump wagon she can haul manure, soil, and rocks in. She tills the garden with it and the garden has never been better. Mom’s thrilled for the chance to use her little rig and uses it even when doesn’t need to.

She’ll start it up to run out to the barn or field to tell Dad that lunch is ready. They have cell phones but they aren’t as much fun.

Every time Dad hears that tractor coming it brings a smile to his face. He’s checking out new attachments for next year.
