    Yes, that is a dulcimer I made while visiting a friend in Arkansas. Thanks for asking.

    Murphy, that's a really lovely quilt. The colors work so nicely together. Good job on the setting squares and triangles. Did you do the quilting as well?

    I used to make the single giant lone star quilts for a living and believe me, after you have knocked a couple of them out you can just about do it in your sleep. They are not hard to do once you get the hang of putting your strips together folks so I encourage you all to try doing one!

    I sent it out for quilting as it is quite large and I don't have the ability to handle large quilts (smile). I agree that once you get the hang of how the strips go together it goes along very well.
