Don't even look at this, a repeat!
Well, finally, eh? I'm Elaine, from Texas, USA. I was actually born and raised in the Northwest but moved to the Southwest in 1999, via North Carolina, Arizona, New Mexico and finally here, in Texas @ 5 years ago. The hubs and I are old and hate snow, hence, the move south!
We have 5 kids between us, @9 grands and @least 1 great-grand who is so cute and cuddly...but, I digress. My hubs is retired from his career and I'm having "issues" so am not working. But, when I do work, I am an ER nurse.
I collected fabric @ 10 years before I learned how to quilt. I did sign up for a beginner quilt class and thought it was a total waste of time, so began hoarding quilt magazines and books and taught myself how to quilt...yeaaaa!!
I also own a quilt shop, brick and mortar and also sell products on etsy and enjoy meeting new people from all over the world. Here's a little known fact....it's cheaper to mail packages to Canada then the US. Packages and envelopes get to Australia faster then to Canada!
I have thought alot about what I want to choose for my month and have decided to go with the disappearing 4 patch, if ya'll don't mind. I'll post the pics and directions for you. I want to send out some squares for you ladies and you get to choose at least 1, maybe 2 fabrics from your stash to complete the square.
If you want to make 2 blocks, great, if only one, that's cool too. I am going to be using 5" squares, so go dig that orange out Vivian, lol!
I have addresses for: Tara, San-Dee, Jenny, Lizzie, Melina and Solidia. If you don't see your name on this list, please do the group email thing and send me your address. I would love to get the packets out to you real soon and I hate feeding Yukon Viv's mule...
DISCLAIMER: I have tried since Sunday and cannot fix this right, I am so sorry. Please look at the pics with the numbers, since they are all out of order, and let me know if you're truly as confused as I am right now. I need a glass of wine or more sleep...yep, more wine. Sorry for any confusion....but really, do let me know if you need better instructions. Like I said, I will send some patches out and ya'll can add your own 5" square or squares. Are the directions confusing? Am I just a blooming nut here? Oops, wine box calling, Elaine
