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 ninety-eight of that project.

This quilt block shows an orange slide, with the same polkoa-dotted splotchy orange fabric that was used in previous park blocks. The chassis for the slide is a dark orange, while the slide and handles are brighter orange. The slide is a depicted sideways, so it's whole structure lies flat as if viewing it from the side with the end of the slide on the left.

The big slide!

This slide is a pretty big one. I can see some kids taking a long time to work up the courage to climb to the top. This would have been me.

I was afraid of heights.

I’m still not best friends with high places but I’m waaay better. Building a two story house and going up and down on scaffolding really helped.

My grandkids would love it.

I liked slides when I was little if it wasn’t too tall. However, the pitfall was I always wore little dresses and I can tell you there are not too many things that feel hotter than a silver slide on bare legs! Boy only did that a couple of times.

My granddaughter wears leggings under everything so she’s safe. But back in the dark ages there were no leggings.

Lucky girl.
