    Thank you - I am trying to make a "big dipper" quilt, and wondered how you would applique around small stars. Does it fray when washed?

    Love the name of your kitty. Are you by chance a fan of the J.D. Robb "in death" series of novels? One of the main characters is named Rourke. Anybody else out there? I am totally hooked.

    Beyond hooked...addicted is more like it...I read the entire series from start to finish at least 3-4 times a year... 8-)
