    I live way out in the country so going to town is a all day affair. It was so nice to find this site and instructions that are easy to understand. Just what I needed when I was about to give up on anyone helping me.

    While I really appreciate your efforts to correct the shipping problem, I had my heart set on the original Four Square pattern. Is there any way you could email me the directions to this table runner? As I am fairly new to quilting I still need the actual directions. I am looking forward to the day when I can tackle a project such as this just by looking at the picture.

    I thank you in advance for your help and support

    Thanks for the pattern for the table runner…it’s more of a Disappearing Nine Patch not the Four Square that was supposed to come in the Tonga Treats packaging. I preferred that look better from the picture.
