Met a guy the other day. Not just any guy but the guy who is running the “long arm” that will assemble my quilt. After all the hours I’ve spent putting together pieces of fabric into my king-sized, Texas star pattern, I’m gonna make sure I’m on the right side of Bill. He’s my quilter! Actually, partner to his wife Carol, in her shop “The Square Quilter”, right there in downtown Shiner, Texas.

I’ve posted a photo of Bill, aka “Prince William” in his apron. Take a look before you get any ideas about that. He is a prince of a guy and that apron is just a utility belt, quilted up a bit. There’s another world out there of people doing what they like, and making an honest and happy living out of it.
