Hi David,

Thank you for alerting me to that! I will watch it and see if
it improves at all.

>I enjoyed demonstrating your tessellation technique with HyperStudio at

Great! I will be interested to hear about your experiences with them.

Do you have a write-up or an idea of a lesson to do which involves
quilting that maybe we could put together to have on the Web?

Nice hearing from you.
Suzanne
