Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan-Claire Mayfield. This is day two hundred and fifty-one of that project.

This quilt block shows a funny shaped building against a blue salmon-patterned background. The building itself is in a sort of trapezoid shape and is light yellow. The roof is actually a painter's palette, the base color being brown. On the palette are blobs of other color, including red, black, yellow, blue and green shown by accompanying fabrics. Below the giant painter's palette are the words in cursive, "Neville Gallery" written in brown on the yellow building. Below the words is a dark teal rounded door with a gray door handle.

I have known Howard Neville for many years.

He’s an amazing artist and a very nice guy. Howard is a wonderful painter and sculptor. You can see his bronze sculptures all over. I personally think a lot of Grand Lake’s charm is from Howard’s sculptures.

When one of my sons was in high school he was interested in art. I asked Howard if he would tutor him and Howard said yes. It was a really nice experience for my son.

Now Howard works with kids at the YMCA in the arts and craft shop.

Thank you Howard, you have added so much to many peoples lives.
