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. This is day forty-two of that project.

This quilt block shows a blue gray background and a patch of grass in the bottom right. On the patch of grass is an orange bench and on the the bench is a little red bird with a yellow beak facing left.

We have another little corner bench here. I would be careful before I sat on this one, however.

This VERY cute bird hangs out here looking for handouts. So, there might be a bird deposit on the bench. Perhaps this is the bird from the tree outside Lena and Angie’s house.

It’s so colorful it’s probably the male.

I was so excited the morning before last. I saw a bald eagle at my house! It soared past my window and went up so I could see its beautiful white tail underneath.

It was a thrill to the patriotic me.
