I'd love to see a picture of the black mouth cur. I have 2 catahoula leopard dogs but sometimes they are called curs and I'm wondering if they look anything like what you have?

Thanks for commenting on my finished quilt! I am really proud of it - it makes me smile every time I walk past the wall where it's hanging!

Your quilt blocks are beautiful - I love the colors you've chosen! Are they part of the Southern Stars project?

Nell, thank you for concern about my sister-in-law. They did admit her to the hosp, eventually. Her Oxygen level had dropped, so we hope they will send her home on Sat with O2 supply. They should have done that the last time she was in there.

Nell, I just read your bio more closely and see that you are from Virginia. My husband has been in Wallops Island for work all week. He forgot to take his coat and he reported that its snowing there this morning!

Nell, your trip around the world quilt for your dad sounds neat. I hope to start the stars for the memory quilt this weekend (if house work doesn't get in the way - we are remodeling a bathroom and it still needs lots of work!). I will post some pictures as it begins to take shape. My sister is also planning to start the embroidery block soon.

Nell, thanks for the nice comments on my quilts. I love your blocks! My parents 50th wedding anniversary is this year and my sister and I will be starting a memory quilt for them soon. Since my dad was in the navy for 20 years, stars will be a part of the quilt. I will be making those blocks and the friendship star is one star block I'm thinking of using. Machine piecing is not really my thing, so its going to be a challenge! Debbie

Hi Nell,
Trianglepoint is a real jewel for design ideas, although I do usually have to tweak the shapes a little to avoid doing a lot of those darn triangle compensators! Thanks for the tip on the graph paper website--I've been there before and definitely use it!
