I have to admit I have found it a bit confusing having two Patti's (well one Patty) who picked the same block this month. I kept seeing blocks for Patty and thinking folks were confused about Patti's choices.
So Patti here's my block for you:
I hope the turquoise floral I chose for the petals is Modern enough. It's one of my favourite fabrics and I've had it in my stash for a long time. I'll be waiting to see if we have a lock out in the postal system, before I mail the block.
Patti, you wanted to know something of our quilting journey. I've been quilting for something like 11 years although for at least 1/2 of that time it was very sporadic.
I didn't sew much before I started quilting. You could call me a home economics failure. I took my first quilting class as a way to help me get through the depressing dark Canadian winters.
Now that my kids are all grown up I quilt quite a bit. I belong to my local traditional guild where I now co chair the outreach committee (we make donation quilts). I also belong to the Toronto Modern Guild where I'll be organizing swaps and quilt alongs.
