I do like it, John! It's just beautiful, and I'm sure your
"self-professed quilting widow" does, too. G

Well done, John! It looks beautiful and perfect. My DH John (known as
the Count) just completed his Carpenters Square quilt (no ability to
show photos) and had some degree of fame. Fons and Porter accepted and
had on their show his Tip of the Day Show #911 last Sat. He was a wood
patternmaker, and loves the accuracy part of quilting, pus the accolades
from our Quilt Guild. He's the only male member. LOL Nancycog in MD

Book? I'm a bibliophile. (I think that means I love books, not that I
mistreat them.) And now quilt books!

Your quilt is magnificent! Your wife's color choices are magnificent! I'm
looking forward to seeing your next project.

I used a picture in one of my quilt books as inspiration. . . . . In a
couple of pictures in the same book, they show a zig-zag pattern.

My wife has just published a reference book on revolutionary war
patriots. She was director of copy editing services for a large legal
publishing company for many years before retirement. I laughingly
refer to her as "Conan the Grammarian". She copy edits signs alongside
the freeway and is a charter member of the apostrophe police. I
sometimes wonder how we ever got together, based on my casual approach
to spelling.

John, that is definitely a WOW quilt--a real eye-opener! Love it! I may
have to try that idea in my next quilt for my son, I have not yet done a Log
Cabin and that one really excites me.

Please tell your sweetheart about the sign at the grocery today. It offered
"potato's at $2 for five pounds or $5 for ten pounds". That happens all
the time, I simply try not to look. Polly

Ah, but would they allow you to buy two sets of five pounds for $4?
