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 eighty-two of that project.

This quilt block shows a lighter background color than previous blocks. A single sign with some rocks behind it stands at the top of a wooden post in this block. An orange border is around a yellow square with the words inside saying, "ROAD WORK AHEAD," in all capitals.

I am on a new round with my quilt. The backgrounds on the next 39 squares is a Hoffman fabric called Swordfish. Here is the entire quilt so far, which is now 37 1/2” sq.

This is the entire quilt as it is being made. All the blocks in previous posts so far are in this quilt. The background colors become lighter as we move outward from the center, and there is a big star in the middle.

Looks like we’re going to see some road construction in this round. Here is a ROAD WORK AHEAD sign.

When we see this sign it’s meant to warn us as to what is coming up. At this point, we are supposed to become more aware and more observant. We are to be on the lookout for dangerous situations and ready to modify our responses accordingly.

As I was preparing this block I thought how many times I have had signals or warnings about situations in my life that I ignored.

I find myself not ready for a situation where I need to be more flexible or forgiving or patient. In hindsight, I can see where the warning signs were and wish I had heeded them.

I’m going to try to pay more attention to the “road signs”.
