    6" - Oh my. being enabled! Again!

    Another cousin is no longer quilting so packed up all this fabric for me!! What a treasure for doing my 6"ers! Wonderful that her taste in fabric really matches mine! Want to dive right in, but first I'd better have lunch!!

    I know your cousin thought you to be very special to you to give you her fabric now that she is no longer quilting and I know she will enjoy seeing you use and enjoy her gift to you. Very special.

    Hey roguequilter, my cousins live in White Rock, BC just over the border. I'm Canadian and now live in Ridgefield, WA! For Christmas I have asked my family here for a small plastic tote from each (3). Right now my scraps are spread in piles on a back bedroom table (plywood laid on the posts of a bed) color sorted. Have many of the totes but now need more!!

    The sister is my "angel" who visits me twice a year - Fabric Depot here we come. She introduced me to quilting and now enables me!
