    There will be mandolins in progress as long as there are untreated mandolin addicts and chronic luthiers. Those look good enough to eat, Steve!

    Hank,
    Can't tell you how much I've appreciated your positive props over the years.
    Thank you.

    Here's one more to top off the string. They call this "Angel Step" quilt. I wish I could find more . . .

    You “chronic luthiers” are amazing not only in your artistry but in your patience humble suggestions and help when questioned about methods and materials. Steve that’s truly an appropriate name for this pattern after you made it so. Stay well my Cafe Brothers!

    Steve, that’s the nicest looking quilt I have ever seen! Your sunburst is perfect and it really highlights the figuring!
