    I am looking for a Blocks in a Southwest style. I would like to make a wall hanging first, and then possibly go on to a bed quilt size. If someone could steer me to a web site that would have different block, it sure would be helpful.

    Thanks from VERY COLD Wisconsin. Right now it is -11 with windchill of -25 and going down.

    Loretta, I missed the news this evening. MORE snow. No Way. Well, then that mean it will warm up some. Too dang cold to snow now. Although up here we were very lucky this past week with the snow. We didn't get anything from that latest storm.

    I have her book on Quilts of the Southwest and love all of them. I have three of them 'in the works' although two of them mean just the fabric bought and pressed.

    I just looked at swdecoratives.com I really like the one called Trading Post.
    I have a pic of a quilt made with that pattern, and they used lots of different Southwestern colors. The quilt was called Colores, but I can't remember where I found it.

    Good luck Barb!

    Funny... Wisconsin is one of the few states I have not been in. But I have been to Minnesota in the middle of winter. I have also lived in Athens Ohio when it was -15 degrees and skied in Maine when it was under -20 F.

    I sympathize with y'all.

    Stay warm, make another quilt.

    I recently purchased my fabric for the Hopi Basketry quilt. It is a round SW quilt made with a 9 degree ruler. It can be seen in the wall hangings section. I did read the instrcutions and it is an easy quilt to make! It sure look hard but very simple. It is acutally strip piecing and then cutting up the strips with the special ruler. I need to finish up what I have on my wall now and then off to this quilt. I am making the large one.

    I looked at my profile. I can't believe I put down I am an undertaker, (not that there is anything wrong with that).

    But wait, that was New Years Eve (2006) I wrote that. Perhaps I had one too (or is it two) many glasses of wine?

    Oh well, I will leave it that way. Confuse the quilters.

    As for my feet, I was taking a photo of the blocks of my quilt as I was deciding which one went where.

    Cute toes, don'tcha think?

    Hope you find one, and try to stay warm.
