    Here is 3 more pictures..One is of my quilt..I may sew another 2-1/2" around the out side yet..Not really sure..Just thinking to my self on that option.. The other 2 pictures are of the flooding that we are going thru.. Not as bad as Col. Junction, or of some of the near by town's.. There is a town, called Oakville, that is totally engulfed by the river completely.It's roughly a 30-45 min., drive from Muscatine, where I live..Anyhow everyone take care.. Don-isewman1

    Another picture of the water..The roadway is a 4 way street. 2 in one direction, and 2 the other way.They (the DOT) have cut off alot of highways.. It's making it hard for people to get where they need to go..

    This is some of flooding that is going on in our area.. They tell us there is 5-6 ft of water around the building in the picture.

    Don you do amazing work. I love that quilt. I hope that the rain stops soon and that you can dry out. We also have had a lot of flooding here in Missouri.

    Oh Don stay safe and dry. Your quilt is beautiful and I like just the way it is. I keep praying that the rain will stop for a while for everyone so they can start to rebuild and clean up around there. Good Luck.

    Don, I have been thinking about you ever since you said you live in Muscatine. I knew all our water would eventually get down your way. Stay safe and dry. Your quilt is very beautiful I love the colors together.

    Your quilt is stunning-true craftsmanship shining through.

    It is so sad about all the flooding in your area, mother nature can be so cruel. Stay dry and safe.
